TOPPS released their 2010 All-Stars for the Short-Season/Rookie League classifications yesterday on MiLB.com.
A member of the Helena Brewers was on the list.
Cody Hawn, 22, of Knoxville, Tenn., drove in 61 runs for the Helena Brewers, tied for second in the classification. The first baseman hit .308 and ranked among the top five in the Pioneer League in RBIs, homers (13), doubles (20), slugging percentage (.542) and OPS (.948). The Milwaukee Brewers selected Hawn in the sixth round of the June Draft out of the University of Tennessee.
It should be noted that Hawn is not definite to start 2011 with the Timber Rattlers…but it sure would be nice if he did.
Tom Haudricourt mentions that Baseball America has a recap of the 2010 Milwaukee Brewers draft. However, that BA part is behind the subscriber wall. So..
BA notes the offensive prowess displayed by first baseman Cody Hawn, a
sixth-rounder out of Tennessee, with the rookie club in Helena and
cites him for “Best Pro Debut.”
Another college first baseman Hunter
Morris, a fourth rounder out of Auburn, is mentioned.
On the defensive side, ninth-rounder Yadiel Rivera, a prep shortstop out of Puerto Rico, gets mention.
BA notes that third-rounder Tyler Thornburg could move fast because
of his electric fastball. And fifth-rounder Matt Miller, a right-hander
out of Michigan, is mentioned for his strong showing at Helena.
I think that most of the players mentioned have a good shot at being Timber Rattlers sometime in 2011.
