BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Justin Hancock features a sinking low-90s fastball, along with a decent changeup and breaking ball, but doesn't miss bats enough to slot as more than a back-end starter or middle reliever. His proximity to the majors provides the vast majority of his value to the ballclub.
2014 Justin Hancock, a 2011 ninth-round pick, was leading the Midwest League in ERA before being promoted in June; don't be fooled by Hancock's struggles at Lake Elsinore and lackluster strikeout rates at both levels, which say more about his approach than his stuff.
