Alen Hanson 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Hanson continues to hit when given opportunities.  Bochy continues to limit those opportunities.  

 

It'd be really interesting to see what he could be if given full time ABs.  It's not like the Giants have LF solved right now, and Pablo Sandoval has gone in the tank since the Longoria injury (hitting .229/.315/.354 the last 2 weeks).  I know that's a small sample, but it's what we have to go by since that's when Sandoval basically started playing everyday.  Plus it's not like Sandoval is some locked-in stud.  He was a reclamation project that's turned out pretty well, but Hanson might just be better.

Anyone is better than Sandoval let alone a good young player like Hansen.  Sandoval has the annoying trait of getting just enough hits to tease then he tanks. I hate it when old school managers don't let the young players get enough regular ABs because of the vet respect crap.  Pandering to a has been panda does not get you to the playoffs.  Hansen should take him out for a night on the town hitting all the cheeseburger places.  That will hibernate Sandoval for another year and give Hansen more ABs.

Panik to the DL,again. 

 

How are we feeling about Hansen?

 

Decent MI option? Or could still breakout with FT ABs?

he's one start away from 3b/ss eligbility in Yahoo! leagues. would be nice!

 

Yeah couldn't Panik have waited to get injured AFTER Alen picked up 3B and SS too?  Now Hansen will have to play at 2B all the time.  Panik has no consideration for us fantasy baseball owners.

 

But what young players need most is daily reps and not sitting out every other game so that is a good thing for him.  (Sorry, Mr Panik).

At the very least, he's a decent MI option while Panik is out.  It would be nice if he would start running again though, as he was when he first got called up, but hasn't done much there since.
