The younger brother of Craig Hansen--Boston's first-round pick out of St. John's in 2005--Kyle won't go quite as high. He has large frame at 6-foot-8, 215 pounds, and figures to pitch out of the bullpen in pro ball just like his brother. He has a plus fastball that sits in the low 90s and gets up to 96 mph with good sink. His command is just fair, though he has been able to keep his walk rate under three per nine innings while striking out more than 11 per nine. Questions about his secondary stuff lead scouts to project him as a reliever. He flashes a slider with depth that can be average to plus at times, but it's inconsistent. He has also mixed in a changeup with sink that has improved, but probably won't be much of factor in pro ball. His mechanics aren't terribly clean and he has some funk in his delivery, but he makes it work. When he's on he gets out in front well and can be very difficult to pick up.
