Perhaps we should be following the advice of the author?

While it's easy to write Hansen off as a prospect, rumors of his demise are premature. Hard evidence of this the progress he made in his last start of the season. “I don’t think it’s going to be much of an issue,” said Zaleski. “The time off in the offseason getting healthy and strong will be very beneficial. He did it once, so I don’t see it as being a problem,” he added.
Pitchers with a top-level fastball and a 60-grade slider to go with an above average curve shouldn't be discounted easily. He's got an entire offseason to return to form and the full support of the White Sox organization to help him get through it.
