That's pretty big. Especially for Hanson, who is just now starting to adjust back to AA pitching but with only a handful of games left.

Interestingly, Gift Ngoepe is also going. Borderline plus-plus defender at SS, but the bat is struggling. If he can get that bat fixed, he's a potential solution at short.

I really like Gift, including his story and his background. His glove is truly special, rated above 70 by some scouts I've read. Realistically, his future is probably as a backup shortstop who can glove it all over the infield.

Plus speed, too, I believe. Needs to perfect the bunt.
