3rd Round Pick joins the Hawks
Hannemann, who had a banner season at Brigham Young University this spring, has joined the Hawks in Spokane. He is the second 2013 draft pick to be added to the Boise roster – joining catcher Cael Brockmeyer.
Hannemann, 22, was named the West Coast Conference Freshman of the Year this season after spending two years on a LDS mission. He batted .344 (74-for-215) with 16 doubles, seven triples, five home runs, 29 RBI, a .415 on-base percentage and a .553 slugging mark in 51 games for BYU, going 14-for-15 in stolen base attempts. Hannemann batted .385 with a .453 on-base percentage and a 1.084 OPS in his final 42 contests beginning February 27.
Following the season, he was named to the first-team Freshman All-America team by Louisville Slugger and a second-team NBWCA All-American.
The Cubs have now signed 11 of their 40 draft picks this season, including three of their top five.
