|Tommy Hanson moved to Triple-A |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/19/14) White Sox pitcher Tommy Hanson has made his way to Triple-A, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Hanson signed with the club, but was pitching in extended spring training in order to build his strength. He'll likely need a few starts before the team considers bringing him up to the majors.
|White Sox bring in Tommy Hanson |

(4/7/14) The White Sox have signed pitcher Tommy Hanson to a minor-league deal, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Hanson went through spring training with the Rangers, but was released in late March. He posted a 5.42 ERA in 73 innings with the Angels last year.
|Tommy Hanson clears waivers |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/28/14) Pitcher Tommy Hanson cleared waivers after being released by the Rangers and is a free agent.
It's been quite a fall from grace for Hanson after finishing third in the NL Rookie of the Year voting in a season in which he went 11-4 with a 2.89 ERA in 21 starts. His ERA has gotten progressively worse each season, culminating in a 5.42 ERA with the Angels last season.
|Rangers unload disappointing Tommy Hanson |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/26/14) Right-hander Tommy Hanson has increased his ERA every year since an impressive debut with Atlanta and 2009 - and now he's out of work. He was released by the Rangers on Wednesday despite that injury-battered team's desperate need for starting pitchers.
Hanson yielded 10 runs in 14 innings this spring and regressed as the exhibition season progressed. He is just 27 years old, however, and is quite likely to be given another chance elsewhere.
|Tommy Hanson coughs up seven runs in loss to Royals |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/22/14) Rangers pitcher Tommy Hanson took a step back on Saturday, coughing up seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five over 5 2/3 innings of work in a loss to Kansas City.
Hanson has allowed 11 runs -- 10 earned -- over 14 innings of work in four appearances (two starts) this spring.
|When the Braves unloaded Tommy Hanson, long regarded as their future ace, for reliever Jordan Walden last offseason, it struck some as an undersell. But Hanson only confirmed in his one year with the Angels what appeared to be the case down the stretch in 2012: He's just not the same after tearing his rotator cuff in 2011. Despite tweaks to his delivery, he hasn't been able to regain the 2-3 mph he lost on his fastball, and apparently, that makes all the difference. Once a bat-misser, he has become the worst sort of pitch-to-contact type, giving up line drives and home runs by the bushel, and it only got worse with his move to the AL. Granted, a lengthy bereavement period followed by a forearm strain limited him to only 15 appearances, which may not be the fairest assessment of his abilities, but the Angels' decision to non-tender Hanson speaks volumes. He'll most likely have to compete for a rotation spot this spring, and unless he shows signs of a Scott Kazmir-like resurgence, you can ignore him on Draft Day.
