 Biographical information
Pitcher Devern Hansack began his professional baseball career in the Houston Astros chain, going 1-2, 2.67 for Venoco in the 2000 Venezuelan Summer League. The next year, he went 1-1, 2.70 with Venoco. Moving up to the Tri-City Valley Cats in 2002, he had a 3-4, 3.60 campaign. He went 10-6 with a 4.52 ERA for the Lexington Legends in 2003, but the Astros deemed him a non-prospect and let him go after the season. In part, that was because he was one of over 500 players, mostly foreign-born, who were discovered to have an age discrepancy; Hansack's listed birthday of August 5, 1982 was four and a half years later than his actual one (2-5-78), significantly changing the context of his performance in the Low-A South Atlantic League.
He spent the next two years in a Nicaraguan league and worked as a lobsterman to pay the bills. In the 2005 Baseball World Cup, he was 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA and 15 K in 13 1/3 IP. In 2006, he was signed by the Boston Red Sox and went 8-7, 3.26 for the Portland Sea Dogs. That earned him a late promotion to Boston, where he was 1-1 with a 2.70 ERA for the 2006 Red Sox. In the season finale, he threw a five-inning no-hitter cut short by rain. Due to the rules put in place in 1991, this was not considered an official no-hitter.
