Rick Forney on Kent Hasler: Kent’s a really good, young right-hander. He did pretty much all you can do in the Frontier League. The strikeouts to innings pitched really stand out. He threw the ball well this winter and got signed by the Diamondbacks. Unfortunately, his audition time was cut short due to the pandemic, but if he can duplicate his numbers in our league, then he’s a guy who will have an opportunity to get back to affiliated ball.
