Mitchell is no longer a prospect.
Walker is hitting .212 at AA.
Thompson is hitting .253 at AA, .186 over the past 10 games- still might be a prospect- he is showing some decent power- but 82 K's in 82 games is a pretty big red flag.
Hawkins is only a year out from being drafted- but hes hitting .191 with 88 K's in 52 games.
We don't have a single outfielder in our minor league system who projects to be on the major league roster in 2014- so from 2012, 2013, 2014- our farm system won't produce a single OF who could help- which is why we have crap like Danks, Wells, Wise and Tekotte.
