Chuck Garfien has an interview with Alec Hansen today.

Needless to say, it'll be a huge boost to the Sox rebuild if Hansen can put 2018 behind him and return to his 2017 form.

There will be a lot of eyes on that Monday start. Hope he can figure it out and get back to being the pitcher he was before.

Did he lose the forty pounds on his own or was that part of a program?

Per Hector Gomez, the Sox are trying to sign Eloy to an 8 year/$100M extension. Here's the SSS writeup about it:

For a guy who's lost the kind of velocity that he did, I'm not sure I'm excited to hear he lost 40 pounds and is trying to focus on longevity of outings. He's not going to be effective throwing in the 80's.

To clarify, the article said he lost the 40 lbs before last season and has gained it back this year.

Ah...gotcha. Will be interesting to see the gun readings his first outing. He doesn't have the kind of stuff to accompany it with an 88 mph fastball. He needs to throw harder, and he needs to regain command of all of his pitches. We'll see.

I haven't heard anything about him this spring. Maybe that's because he's in the minor league camp and we just don't get much news about the guys there?
