Craig Hansen to make Pawtucket debut tonight
The Pawtucket Red Sox say on their Web site that stud relief prospect Craig Hansen, just called up from Double-A Portland, will pitch tonight when the PawSox wrap up a four-game home series against the Durham Bulls.
The Red Sox drafted Hansen from St. John's in the first round of last year's draft. He pitched in four games for the big-league team down the stretch last year. Hansen, 22, has a fastball that can hit the high 90s. He gave up just 1 run in 11 innings with the Portland Sea Dogs, striking out 12 and walking 4, before receiving the call yesterday to come to Rhode Island.
Tonight's game starts at 6:05 at McCoy Stadium.
