    So what’s up with Hanson getting dissed?

    • http://www.piratesprospects.com Tim Williams

      He’s not. The Dominican league usually prioritizes players closer to the majors. Guys in A-ball can be on the roster, but usually don’t get the majority of the playing time.

          Those players usually play in the Fall Instructional Leagues.
