Hawkins has a .228/.271/.405 line after 79 at-bats across 21 games at Double-A Birmingham.

Hawkins recently went cold at the plate, causing his batting average to fall from .275 to .200 in a matter of four games. However, he's played just 16 games since missing a month with an oblique injury, so it could simply be a matter of needing time to regain his footing. While this will delay his potential arrival at Triple-A Charlotte, the additional time with Birmingham will help the power hitting outfielder improve his batting average and on-base percentage.
