Major League Contracts vs. Minor League Contracts?

I was reading one of the other posts and Craig Hansen's name was brought up. I know when he was drafted out of St Johns, Scott Boras and the Sox agreed to a Major League Contract. I always felt Hansen was rushed to the bigs and blamed Boras because he insisted on a Major League deal. Was this because he was out of options and/or had to be kept on the 40-man roster? Or how does that work??
