“Hanser enjoys playing the game and that’s clear when he’s playing,” Hyde said. “You can see the little mannerisms in the box. None of that is show, that is actually him. He loves to compete, loves to play. He plays the game like he’s in Little League for the fun of it.
“That’s why he’s a pleasure to have around. That’s why he plays loose, that’s why he plays easy, that’s why he can play multiple positions. That’s why I have confidence in just throwing him out there in the ninth inning in a terrible spot yesterday. It was like, ‘OK, who can just get three outs? Hopefully Hanser can throw the ball over the plate.’ Yeah, just love his makeup and his attitude and everything about him.
“He’s just awesome to have in the clubhouse, awesome to watch on the field. He’s the loudest guy in the dugout. It’s just been a pleasure for sure.”
