Hansen allowed one hit and two walks while striking out one over two scoreless innings for High-A Kannapolis.

This was Hansen's first start following his demotion from Double-A Birmingham. Hansen, who led the minor leagues in strikeouts in 2017, hit a developmental road block this year, starting with a right forearm injury in spring training. The 23-year-old right-hander didn't start pitching in game conditions until June and by that time, was all out of rhythm. The White Sox hope Hansen can build off his two-inning outing and finish the season with some positives.
