This month's Pirate Prospect Profile is on Alen Hanson
|2012 Leaf Memories AUOT 10/25|
Far and away this Bowman Sterling is my favorite of the bunch though as the parallel just looks awesome in black and gold.
|2012 Leaf RIZE of the Prodigy Print Proof 94/100|
I recently grabbed this Rize Inaugural Edition Proof of the young shortstop also.
Hanson is currently playing in A ball as a 20 year old shortstop. He has a batting line of .289/.346/.446 which means his OPS is .792. That's a very strong line for a middle infielder who just turned 20. Take away his terrible April start in which he batted only .255 and he would have an average over .300 and an OPS around .900. Add in the fact that he has 5 HR and 20SB through only 72 games and you're looking at a future top of the lineup hitter and top prospect.
