RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hassan handled his promotion to Double-A Portland quite well, showing the great strike-zone management and approach he's been known for at the lower levels. The question remains whether he can generate more loft in his swing to produce more power. It's the offensive part of his game that will get him to the majors, so the improved run production is what we'll be looking for from him in 2012. With a few outfielders ahead of him, developmentally, Hassan will likely repeat at Portland to start the season.
A former pitcher at Duke, Hassan was turned into an everyday player after the Red Sox organization watched him hit in the Cape Cod League. And Hassan hasn't looked back. He has an impeccable eye for the strike zone, which you can see in his on-base percentage. The organization would like to see him generate more power by getting more of his lower body into his swing, but they certainly love the decision to take him off the mound. There's still some work to do defensively, which means he'll probably land in left field eventually, making his power production more important.
