If you're looking at the DSL to measure farm system talent, you're looking in the wrong place....

Future Sox has a good article on Alec Hansen's struggles this season and his efforts with coach Matt Zaleski to get back on track:

Write him off as a bust, apparently.

Remember how Rutherford was trash after last season?

Doesn't sound super enouraging. Prospect of him becoming a pen piece is going up.

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.

Southsidesox's recap of the Great Falls season. It give a good summary of the performance of several 2018 draft picks plus 18-year old international signee Lenyn Sosa:
