Chicago White Sox prospect and current 1B/DH of the Charlotte Knights was just honored by the International League, earning Player of the Month honors for July. In August, he hasn’t slowed down.
In July, Wilkins hit 12 HR and 31 RBI all while maintaining a .419 batting average. Through five games in August, Wilkins is hitting .563 (9/16) with three doubles, one home run, and two runs batted in.
On Wednesday night, he hit his International League leading 27th HR. Unless something drastic changes, it appears that Wilkins is almost a lock that he will be part of the September call ups to Chicago.
