Don’t think they would rush either in their first full season of pro ball, they are just 19(Hanson) and 20 years old. Both of them basically skipped over State College, playing three games each there. If I had to guess, I’d say they will do the same this year, spend the last week with Bradenton. I should’ve mentioned this above. Hanson looked real good with his throwing in pre-game infield practice as they ran various drills. Once the game started, even the throws during the pitchers warming up before the inning, looked like he was too tentative. His throw last night for the error was really bad.

I think they just leave him as shortstop for WV and let him work on it daily. They made huge strides with Eric Avila’s throws last year at WV so hopefully they can do the same with Hanson because he has shortstop range and arm strength.
