Alen Hanson: Released by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners cut ties with Hanson on Saturday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.

After hitting under .200 at both the Triple-A and major-league levels last season, it seemed like an uphill battle for Hanson to secure an Opening Day roster spot with Seattle. With minor-league baseball likely canceled for the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hanson may not have an opportunity to play baseball in a major-league organization this year, barring a late addition to another squad.

Mariners' Alen Hanson: Invited to big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson signed with the Mariners as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Hanson played 18 games with the Blue Jays in 2019 before being released in August, hitting .163/.229/.163 with five runs scored and four RBI in 48 plate appearances. The 27-year-old second baseman will join his fifth major-league team and head to spring training to work with Seattle's coaching staff before likely returning to the minors to begin the year.

Alen Hanson: Cut loose by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson was released by the Blue Jays on Sunday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Hanson hasn't been able to find his stroke at the plate in 2019, slashing .187/.232/.271 with three homers and 18 RBI through 48 games with Triple-A Buffalo. He'll head to the open market as a result of his poor performance.

Blue Jays' Alen Hanson: Remains in organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson cleared waivers Tuesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Hanson did very little of note in his 18 games with the Blue Jays, hitting .163/.229/.163. Now that he's off the 40-man roster, he's one step further from returning to the big leagues.

Blue Jays' Alen Hanson: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday.

Hanson failed to make an impression across 18 games with the Blue Jays, slashing just .163/.229/.163 with a 35.4 percent strikeout rate. Derek Law, who was acquired from the Giants alongside Hanson and Juan De Paula in exchange for Kevin Pillar earlier in the month, will take Hanson's spot on the roster.

Blue Jays' Alen Hanson: Benched again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins.

Hanson looked to be in line for more work in the infield following Lourdes Gurriel's recent demotion to Triple-A Buffalo, but it's instead been callup Eric Sogard who has been the main beneficiary. Sogard will draw a third consecutive start as the Blue Jays' leadoff man while Hanson remains on the bench for a second consecutive game. The switch-hitting Hanson may still be viewed as a short-side platoon mate for Sogard, who bats from the left side.

Blue Jays' Alen Hanson: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson is not starting Wednesday against Minnesota, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Hanson has been receiving fairly regular opportunities with the Blue Jays, starting six of the last nine games. Eric Sogard starts at second base in his absence.

Blue Jays' Alen Hanson: Sitting in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

The Blue Jays haven't been shy about giving Hanson opportunities following his recent acquisition from the Giants, as the utility man had started four of the past five games. Hanson has yet to capitalize, however, recording only three hits and striking out nine times in 18 at-bats since joining the Blue Jays. If he doesn't break out of his slump at the plate soon, Hanson may not be long for the Jays' 40-man roster.

Blue Jays' Alen Hanson: Late addition to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson will start at second base and hit ninth Thursday against the Indians, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

Hanson was originally situated on the bench for Thursday's series opener before a neck injury to Justin Smoak forced him into the lineup. The utility man was acquired from the Giants earlier in the week along with Derek Law and Juan De Paula in exchange for Kevin Pillar.

April 4, 2019 03:16 PM
Blue Jays' Alen Hanson: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson was added to the Blue Jays' active roster Thursday.

Hanson will be available for Thursday's series opener against the Indians after being acquired from the Giants earlier in the week. The 26-year-old figures to assume a utility role with his new team. He hit .252/.276/.425 with eight homers and seven stolen bases in 110 games with the Giants last season.

Blue Jays' Alen Hanson: Dealt to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants traded Hanson along with pitchers Derek Law and Juan De Paula to the Blue Jays on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Kevin Pillar.

Hanson doesn't have any minor-league options remaining, so he'll presumably take Pillar's spot on the 40-man and active rosters in Toronto after the Giants had designated him for assignment prior to Opening Day. The 26-year-old managed only a .274 on-base average across 310 plate appearances with San Francisco in 2018, but offered some nice versatility as a switch-hitter who can play multiple spots in the infield and outfield. He'll likely be ticketed for a bench role with the Blue Jays.

Giants' Alen Hanson: Won't make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson will not be on the Giants' Opening Day roster, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Hanson was battling for a utility role this spring but unfortunately did little to help himself with a .176/.236/.353 slash line and 20 strikeouts in 51 at-bats. The 26-year-old is out of minor-league options, so he'll have to first go unclaimed off waivers before reporting to the Giants' Triple-A affiliate in San Francisco.

Giants' Alen Hanson: Fighting for utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson is batting .200 (4-for-20) with a home run and a steal this spring.

Hanson was a revelation for San Francisco last season when he slashed .252/.274/.425 with eight homers and seven steals over 294 at-bats while playing all over the infield and outfield. The 25-year-old will have to prove himself again during spring training in order to win a backup utility role over several other options the Giants brought in to camp.

Giants' Alen Hanson: Pops eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Brewers.

The 25-year-old has gone 5-for-16 with two homers to begin September, and Brandon Crawford's sore knee has opened up additional playing time for Hanson at shortstop. He's got a modest .267/.288/.458 slash line with eight homers and seven steals in 95 games on the season, but Hanson could have some surprising fantasy value down the stretch.

Giants' Alen Hanson: Homers off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson smacked a two-run home run in his lone at-bat Monday against the Rockies.

Hanson retreated to the bench after starting four consecutive games in place of Brandon Crawford at shortstop. Despite smacking his seventh homer of the season, Hanson will be limited to a backup utility role now that Crawford is healthy.

Giants' Alen Hanson: Gets fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson will start at shortstop and bat eighth Sunday against the Mets.

The Giants are including Hanson in the lineup for the fourth straight game, with the versatile 25-year-old making three of those starts at shortstop while Brandon Crawford battles a sore knee. Crawford is being viewed as day-to-day, so once he returns to action, Hanson could be deployed in the outfield more regularly. The Giants' depth in the outfield has been whittled down of late following the trade of Andrew McCutchen to the Yankees and the season-ending shoulder injury to Steven Duggar.

Giants' Alen Hanson: Out of lineup again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson is not in the lineup Monday against the Diamondbacks, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Hanson, who is hitting just .245/.241/.358 through 21 games in August, will stick on the bench for a third straight game with left-hander Patrick Corbin starting for the Diamondbacks. Hunter Pence will pick up another start in left field in his place.

August 27, 2018 12:17 AM
Giants' Alen Hanson: Sits for second consecutive game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson is not in the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

This marks the second game in a row Hanson will watch from the bench. This comes as a bit of a surprise, as right-hander Yovani Gallardo is taking the hill for Texas. Perhaps Hanson's recent cold streak at the plate is to blame (two hits in his last 12 at-bats), but either way, it's expected that his playing time will pick up a bit if Andrew McCutchen is moved ahead of the trade waiver deadline. Hunter Pence will take a turn in left field in Hanson's stead.

August 25, 2018 02:00 PM
Giants' Alen Hanson: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson is not in the lineup versus Texas on Saturday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Hanson will receive a breather with lefty Martin Perez on the mound. Austin Slater will man left field and bat fifth in his absence.

August 25, 2018 07:56 AM
Giants' Alen Hanson: Lifted early Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanson started in left field and went 0-for-1 before he was lifted for a pinch hitter in Friday's loss to Texas.

Hanson returned to the starting lineup after being situated on the bench for the last two contests. There were no reports of a potential injury, so the 25-year-old's removal was likely due to a left-handed pitcher entering the contest. Gorkys Hernandez took over in left following the pitching change, which indicates that Hanson should continue to see some starts against righties moving forward. Austin Slater -- who started in left and homered Thursday -- is also in the mix, which could cannibalize all three outfielders' playing time until Andrew McCutchen (who cleared waivers) is moved, assuming that happens before the Sept. 1 trade waiver deadline.
