09/24/2016 - 2016 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures West
Chase is a tall, lean outfielder with a projectable frame (6'2"/165) and a very good left-handed swing. He is loose and natural in the batter's box with a line drive stroke and a knack for finding the barrel. He is most comfortable gap-to-gap and looks to be a singles and doubles guy who is on base consistently. With rhythm and feel at the plate he went 1-3 in the game. Chase is solid in the outfield with an accurate arm and a confidence on ground balls. He profiles best in LF with a bat that should play at higher levels.

Chase is a solid LHH OF who continues to shine. Offensively, this lefty has a square/athletic setup with rhythm to load. He whips the barrel on a short/direct path and connects with some pop. He creates good extension through contact and hits line-drives to all parts of the field. He has good zone awareness and proved to be a tough out going 2 for 3 with 3 walks. In the OF, he works lightly on the balls of his feet and covers a ton of ground. He works behind the ball and plays through it well - gaining ground toward his target. Hanson has the skill-set of a special type of player. He has a bright future ahead of him.

Chase is an intriguing LHH OF that has a 6'2/180 lbs frame. Defensively, he moved with efficient footwork to make plays with a sure glove, and controlled his body to stay behind and through the ball to throw. He had loose actions and fluidity while attacking the ball aggressively, and hit his cutoff with a quick release. At the plate, the lefty showed decent balance and delivered the barrel down through the zone with good core rotation. He accelerated through the zone nicely, and as he implements more top hand involvement will hit more hard line-drives. All in all - Chase is an interesting follow that as the desirable left handed hitting stroke that pairs well with his sure outfield play.
