Hanson is all about projection. Hanson has blossomed as a senior as his velocity has taken a big step forward from the upper-80s to where he now sits in the low-90s and touches 95 mph. As a 6-foot-6, 220-pounder who won't turn 18 until the second day of the draft, he has the size to get bigger and stronger. He also has shown feel for spinning an 80 mph curveball. But the Kentucky signee has a ways to go to learn to control his weapons. Hanson's control is very erratic; he'll sail fastballs to the backstop on occasion and his curveball will vary from a 58-footer to a strike to one that forces the catcher out of his crouch.
