2019-02-06 21:00:00 (link to chat)I have Alec Hansen as a minor leaguer in a dynasty league but he only cost me $1 when I bought him a few years ago. Is he worth hanging onto given how cheap he is, or has his value taken that much of a dive that I should get rid of him and take a flier on someone else?
(John from Texas)
Most (sane) people would tell you yes, but I wouldn't drop Hansen just for the sake of dropping him. If there's a dude on our top 101 or HM section who's available, then sure, but I still love the arm. Definitely scared that he's just a reliever at this point though. - BC (Dynasty 101 Chat w/ Ben Carsley and Bret Sayre)
2018-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Does Alec Hansen being unranked have more to do with him just being out for most of the first half or is there anything legitimately concerning there?
(Collin from Austin)
Yeah, although the reports are down a little bit as well. He's a weird background guy given his junior year at college so he's sneaky risky for a dude with his stuff/pedigree. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-04-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)When you look in your crystal ball, do you see Alec Hansen and/or Alex Faedo carving out successful careers as mid-rotation starters?
(Jett from Skyward)
I'd say definitely for Faedo. Helath/durability is really the only question for him. The stuff is not in question. Hansen is another story. There is still some reliever risk with him. The fastball is a plus pitch, but beyond that there's not a lot of consistency. Crystal ball-he becomes a very good back-end bullpen guy. I'm looking forward to seeing both this season and nope to give you more after those views. (Scott Delp)
2018-01-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a rookie draft at the moment expanding from 140 rostered to 210. Could you name a few guys that might have gotten overlook on the published top 100 lists but could be big movers in 2018. The only notable name left in my league are Alec Hansen, Jhailyn Ortiz, Nolan Jones.
(Chansen8895 from San Jose)
Those are some good names to target, for sure. Jones especially has seen his stock rise over the last calendar year. Some other names I like: Seuly Matias, Gabriel Maciel, Yonathan Diaz, Jesus Luzardo, and Dustin May. (Mark Barry)
2017-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Alec Hansen ends up both a starter and on the South Side?
(edwardarthur from Illinois)
The White Sox have so many arms I legitimately forgot Hansen when answering the question about the 2020 rotation. Even so, there's risk in the profile and it felt lame just rattling off the pitching prospects in order of their ranking, so I made sure to include safer guys like Dunning and Adams.

Still, Hansen is really exciting, and unless like...everything works out perfectly for Rodon / Kopech / Giolito / Lopez (which it won't) it's hard to imagine he'd be blocked. That leaves chance he becomes a reliever on merit weighed with probability of him being traded, the former is still possible, the latter would be pure speculation on my part. (Nick Schaefer)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Should we start to get excited about Alec Hansen's potential with the White Sox?
(Charlie from Tampa)
I think I'm officially the BP Alec Hansen advocate. Yeah, it really seems like he's put it back together, and it was a 1-1 type profile before it fell apart. Whole thing puts him a little back on the developmental curve -- he's now a level behind Puk, for example -- but he's a pitcher so that's not a huge deal. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Alec Hansen having a good start to the year. Top 101 guy yet?
(Donnie from Kentucky)
He was 97 before the season. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-03-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)What prospects are you looking to buy a bunch of pre-season stocks this year so this time next year you their stock will be drastically higher so you can say to everyone "Look I got in on the ground floor on ___"?
(Igor from At a Bar)
So the "problem" - and it's not really a problem at all - when you contribute to lists is that I've pretty much revealed all of my "helium" guys, and our lists reflect them. So like I can give you, say, Thomas Szapucki, Dustin May, and Alec Hansen, but BP's writings and lists already have that purchase price built in. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-03-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)Ian, among the White Sox young arms (excepting Rodin) which do you see making positive Scoresheet contributions in 2017? In 2018? What is Hahn's next move, and has he set the bar too high for himself?
(jtwalsh from Northport, NY)
Hi there! Ian here, ready as ever to be pessimistic about the Sox. I don't really love any young Sock's odds of being a great Scoresheet contributor in 2017 (Including Rodon, for that matter--I think he'll be fine). If pressed, I'd take Lopez for this year, because I think he's the most likely of any of the pitchers to become a young bullpen arm. I'd still have done the Sale and Eaton trades, because the team needed more variance, but I don't think that either trade has better than even odds of working out. 2018 and beyond? I think Kopech, barring dumb bar fights, is the best pitching prospect in baseball, we have drafted Alec Hansen on just about every team we have, and I'd say Dane Dunning is pretty well overlooked besides. Also, "has Rick Hahn set the bar too high for himself?" is like the ultimate celebrity profile question. (Ben Murphy, Ian Lefkowitz and Jared Weiss)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Bret, I could use some help on deep dynasty assets for a prospect draft. 20 team dynasty league, 150+ prospects owned. I have two upcoming picks and I've put together a list of 10 guys that I'm having a terrible time differentiating. My list is: Jake Bauers, Jahmai Jones, Lucas Erceg, Christin Stewart, Taylor Trammell, Alec Hansen, Walker Buehler, Sixto Sanchez, Justin Dunn, Sandy Alcantara I was thinking about one hitter and one pitcher but really I just want the two best values from that list. How would you rank the top 3-5 in case a few get taken between my picks? Obviously some of them are closer to the majors and some are much farther away which is why I'm struggling. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
(treynay3 from Grand Rapids)
I'd go Jones, Alcantara, Erceg, Dunn. (Bret Sayre)
