Hansen finished off his 2017 season with two starts at Double-A Birmingham, giving up five runs on 15 hits and three walks while striking out 17 over 10.1 innings, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. "Having Hansen already in Double A is a huge step forward in terms of where he was a year ago when we drafted him," general manager Rick Hahn said. "It's a great tribute to him and our player development people."
Moncada switched to using a lighter bat earlier this week and has three multi-hit games since, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. "My swing is more fluid, and I feel stronger with my swing with these bats," Moncada said.
