It's local and area products all over the Midwest League this season.
Pitcher Andrew Hanse has been assigned by the parent Tampa Bay Rays to Bowling Green of the MWL. Hanse prepped at Linn-Mar, pitched two years at Ellsworth Community College and two at the University of Iowa.
The 6-foot-6, 22-year-old right-hander was drafted by Tampa Bay last June in the 23rd round. He went a combined 3-2, 2.75 earned run average in 22 relief appearances at short-season A Hudson Valley and Bowling Green.
Also in the Midwest League are former Cedar Rapids Washington prep Chad Christensen (outfielder for Cedar Rapids Kernels) and former Solon prep Derrick Loveless (outfielder for Lansing Lugnuts).
