Blue Jays DFA Alen Hanson

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Toronto Blue Jays Kevin Sousa-USA TODAY Sports

Not a surprise, but the Blue Jays have DFAed Alen Hanson. After his play last night, I would have DFAed him mid-game. But I’d imagine doing it mid-flight would be interesting.

Hanson was hitting .163/.229/.163 with 1 steal. And he had made 353 errors in the field. Roughly. Derek Law came over in the Kevin Pillar trade (along with Hason and Juan De Paula). Law has a 1.69 ERA in 10.2 innings at Buffalo. He’s given up 7 hits, 3 walks and 17 strikeouts.

Bye Alen, I’d like to say it has been fun. I’d like to say it.

I’m thinking there will be another move coming soon to get another bat for the bench, but since our starters aren’t getting to the fifth inning lately, I can see the need for another reliever.

MLB Pipeline ran a mock draft and this was the Blue Jays pick:

11. Blue Jays: Jackson Rutledge, RHP, San Jacinto (Texas) JC

The best junior college prospect since Bryce Harper went No. 1 overall in 2010, Rutledge has some of the most overpowering stuff in the Draft and tops national juco pitchers in ERA (0.93) and ranks second in strikeouts (123 in 77 2/3 innings).

I’m not a believer in mock drafts, I don’t remember seeing one that was accurate past the first few picks, but I’d be ok with this pick.
