23-Year-Old Pitcher – Chicago White Sox
2018 Fantasy Baseball Outlook
Last year’s minor-league leader with 191 strikeouts in 141.1 innings, Hansen looks like a future No. 1 or No. 2 starter on paper. His success in his first full season may oversell his realistic long-t...

Hansen finished off his 2017 season with two starts at Double-A Birmingham, giving up five runs on 15 hits and three walks while striking out 17 over 10.1 innings, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Alec Hansen: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 6-foot-7 right-hander torpedoed his draft stock with a horrific junior season at Oklahoma. He struggled out of the gate and briefly lost his spot in the rotation, finishing with a 5.06 ERA and 7.0 BB/9 over 37.1 innings. He signed for the full slot value at pick No. 49 and the White Sox appear to have gotten one of the steals of the draft. Hansen posted an 81:20 K:BB in 54.2 innings across stops in the Arizona, Pioneer and Sally leagues, and seems to have regained the form that once had him in the mix to go No. 1 overall in the 2016 draft. He features a plus fastball that sits in the mid-90s with late life, a plus slider and potentially plus curveball. Hansen does not need his changeup right now, but it figures to be his fourth best pitch -- a potentially average offering. He does not project to have pinpoint control, but the stuff is so overpowering that he could be a No. 2 starter who racks up strikeouts.
