Hawkins signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Friday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Hawkins was released by the White Sox in mid-April and has since been playing with the Sugar Land Skeeters in the independent Atlantic League. The 2012 first-round pick stalled out at Double-A over the last few years and started this season 3-for-25 before being released by the White Sox. The 24-year-old will likely report to Double-A Pensacola for his new organization.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
2014
2013
Hawkins made it to Double-A for the first time in 2015, but plantar fasciitis cut his season short in July and forced him to miss the Arizona Fall League. Prior to the injury, he continued a trend of low on-base percentages, high strikeout totals and enchanting power potential. Just 22 years old, he is still young and has time to turn things around, but he will need to do so quickly to avoid a being labeled a flame-out. Look for him to repeat Double-A to begin 2016, with the hope of being promoted to the International League before season's end if he can cut back on the whiffs (30.3-percent K rate in 2015) and provide a more palatable on-base percentage (career-high .331 OBP at High-A in 2014).
For about one month, it looked like Hawkins was ready to put the nightmare that was the 2013 season behind him. He had a .358 OBP and seven home runs by the end of April, and it looked like he might be living up to his talent. However, he hit no more than four home runs in any subsequent month, and struck out at a 27.8% rate on the year. He still has the tools to be a serviceable player, but they may take a while longer to come together.
The organization may have rushed Hawkins into High-A action, and he closed the season with 160 strikeouts and a sub-.200 batting average. He missed nearly all of May due to a strained rotator cuff, but he was still able to hit 12 of his 19 home runs on the season in the 80 games after the injury. The tools are still here, but it may take him a bit longer to reach the majors than initially anticipated. Expect him to repeat the level, with the chance to reach Double-A by season's end if the plate discipline improves. 
The White Sox selected Hawkins 13th overall in the 2012 draft. He displayed athleticism right away, pulling off a back flip in MLB Network studios while wearing a full suit. He progressed to the High-A Level in a half-season of professional ball, which is no small feat for a player who turned 19 in the offseason. Hawkins accumulated a .324 OBP across three minor league levels, and he hit eight home runs and stole 11 bases in 229 at-bats. He will likely play out 2013 at Low-A or High-A, possibly splitting time between those levels and it will be interesting to see how his power develops as he progresses through the White Sox organization.
