Default Alen Hanson

Who are some comps that have been thrown around for him? He seems to have the skillset of a Ray Durham.

Reminds me of Orlando Hudson.

I remember Hudson as being a better fielder and a significantly worse offensive player than Durham.

It would be great if Hanson turns into either one, though.

From what I see it's almost a young Ken Henderson. If he sticks in CF.

I am pretty certain a young Ken Henderson takes a better route on Pillar's double in the sixth.

That being said, Hanson was a good pickup.

I know he disappointed the Pirates after being touted as a top prospect. If he can finally put it together, he may have the potential to fit in that lead-off spot which still appears to be wide open.

Orlando Hudson is a good comparison and would be very much welcomed.
