**Anderson Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a double and two walks for the Tigers in the Dominican League.

**In the same game, Alen Hanson entered as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and grounded out in his only at-bat. Hanson remained in the game to play shortstop, replacing Atlanta shortstop Tyler Pastornicky. So far Hanson has just one at-bat in two appearances.

    So what’s up with Hanson getting dissed?

    • 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.

        I sort of came to realize that after I made the comment. I’m interested to know, however, with the numbers of players from low/high A down through the DSL….why not have a winter league geared towards them?

          Those players usually play in the Fall Instructional Leagues.
