The quoted reference is fixed for anyone else who gets confused when clicking. :huh:

 

edit: Great article - I loves me some Hansen! A rotation lead by him and Kopech is a thing that wet dreams are made out of.

Scot Gregor‏ @scotgregor 11m11 minutes ago Top #WhiteSox pitching prospect Alec Hansen dropped 15 pounds this off-season to "create more force." Sounds like he opens year at AA Birmingham

 

Slavko Bekovic‏ @SBekovic 16m16 minutes ago Also, Alec Hansen told me he had 3 missed calls from Tennessee while flying into Chicago for #SoxFest2018. It was Don Cooper. Coop is very excited to work with Hansen, couldn’t believe how tall he was when they met at the airport. #WhiteSox #NextSox

Hansen is especially exciting for fans who saw what he did last season in the minor leagues. The right-handed hurler, a second-round pick in 2016, struck out a jaw-dropping 191 batters in 141.1 innings while splitting time between Class A Kannapolis, Class A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham.

 

And if those numbers don’t do it for you, maybe Cooper’s scouting report will.

 

“I think he’s a big, strong guy that throws the ball in the mid to upper 90s, got a curveball that breaks like a freaking firecracker, a slider that’s hard and sharp and a changeup that’s continually progressing,” Cooper said. “I think he’s a guy that has more work to do, like everybody.”

“The risks don’t have to be high school guys, they could be a toolsy college player, or an Alec Hansen for example, where that ceiling is probably as high of a ceiling that we’ve drafted in the last two years, but also the lowest floor. I’ve just got to do a better job of making sure that we space things out a little bit and give these kids time to develop.”

James Fegan‏ @JRFegan 2h2 hours ago Alec Hansen felt his stuff lose sharpness late in his two starts in Birmingham, so he dropped weight in the offseason with the goal of giving himself more stamina in 2018 https://theathletic.com/225699/2018/01/30/alec-hansen-keeps-a-low-profile-as-much-as-any-very-tall-human-can/ …://https://theathletic.com/225699/2018...ll-human-can/ …
