Default Sox Claim INF Alen Hanson From Pirates

Was a Top 100 prospect. Struggling this year.

Based on his age and lack of accomplishments (including seven years in the minors? ) I'm assuming he is simply filler material somewhere in the organization.

Was a highly rated prospect several years ago.

It's an audition. The more the merrier.

He's still just 24 years old, so he can still develop into a useful player. Nothing at risk here.

Good thing they didn't trade for him several year ago.

Yeah, I remember posters here clamoring for him a while back. Was it for Peavy? Rios?

Anyway, not that he's free, we've got nothing to lose in giving him an audition.

What's going on with Tyler Saladino? He's been out for a much longer time than expected.

I think Saladino has been "Wally Pipp'd" by this move.

The guy had serious back issues according to Ventura at the end of last season and apparently he's got back issues again.

It never really goes away (ask Joe Crede).

EVERY Sox player on the DL this year seems to be out longer than was being predicted or based on the initial comments from the organization.
