The White Sox doubled their showing on MLB.com's Top 100 prospect rankings.

2012 first-round draft pick Courtney Hawkins was the team's lone representative on the midseason Top 100 last summer at No. 67, but fell off the MLB.com rankings released Thursday.

In his stead, right-hander Erik Johnson (70th) and third baseman Matt Davidson (80th) cracked the list.

Davidson was ranked 64th by MLB.com last summer.

Hawkins hit 19 homers and stole 10 bases in 2013, but carried just a .178 average at Advanced Class-A Winston-Salem and struck out 160 times in just 383 at-bats.

With the Diamondbacks' Triple-A affiliate last season, Davidson hit 17 homers and 32 doubles with 74 RBI before being called up to the big leagues for the final month of the season.

Johnson went 12-3 with a 1.96 ERA in 24 starts for Double-A and Triple-A and started five games in the majors late in the year, going 3-2 with a 3.25 ERA. The 24-year-old righty is in competition for the White Sox Opening Day rotation.
