Drafted in the 2nd round (67th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2015 (signed for $997,500)
In 1991, the Blue Jays were enamored enough with a tall, sweet-swinging and academically-inclined lefthanded-hitting outfielder to pick him sixth overall, which was enough to induce him to forgo his scholarship to Stanford. Both Shawn Green and the Blue Jays made a wise decision as Green went on to play nearly 2,000 MLB games. He's unlikely to go in the top six picks, but Hansen, a tall, sweet-swinging and academically-inclined lefthanded-hitting outfielder with a Stanford commitment will face a similar decision. Hansen has been a two-sport star at Plano playing quaterback/wide receiver and outfield and his sister just set an Ivy League record in winning the women's heptathlon. Hansen has an ideal corner outfielder's frame as he should add significant good weight to his 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame. He plays center field for now and shows good reads and routes, but will likely grow to a corner spot as he gets bigger and slows down. He's currently an above-average runner who turns in plus times at his best. His arm is below-average. His swing can get long at times, but it's a smooth stroke with some lift and leverage that could eventually produce above-average power. Signability is a question if he falls far in the draft.
