|Tommy Hanson surrenders two runs in spring debut |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/5/14) Making his Cactus League debut Wednesday, Rangers pitcher Tommy Hanson allowed two earned runs on five hits while striking out three in three innings as the Rangers fell to the Rockies, 8-2.
"He did a good job," manager Ron Washington told MLB.com. "He's been a successful pitcher, and hopefully he'll stay healthy and he'll continue to do the things he did today. If he pitches like that for six or seven innings, he's going to keep us in ballgames."
Hanson is competing for a job in the team's rotation to open the season and is not concerned after the Rangers signed another competitor this week in Joe Saunders.
"I just have to go out and worry about myself," Hanson told MLB.com. "Whatever is going to be best for this team is going to happen, so hopefully I can go out and do my part and throw well. This is where I want to be and this is the team I want to play for. Hopefully it all works out and comes together at the end of the spring."

(2/27/14) Rangers pitcher Tommy Hanson will be fighting for a roster spot during the spring, and he got off to a solid start in his debut Thursday against the Royals.
Hanson was the first pitcher to come out in relief of Yu Darvish, and he allowed just an unearned run in one-plus innings of work. Unfortunately, he struggled a bit with his control, throwing just 18 of 35 pitches for strikes. He struck out one batter and walked one while finishing 1 1/3 innings.
Hanson looked like an ace a few years ago, but he was unable to hold onto a major-league job with the Angels a year ago. He is pitching on a split contract after posting a 5.42 ERA in 73 innings in 2013.

(2/12/14) Rangers pitcher Tommy Hanson's contract contains a minor-league split, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Hanson has a major-league deal with the club, but still can be optioned to the minors. He received a $2 million deal, but will only make that rate based on how much time he spends in the majors. Hanson will compete for the final spot in the team's rotation during the spring.

(2/11/14) The Rangers have signed pitcher Tommy Hanson to a major-league deal.
The deal was initially thought to be a minor-league contract, but that's not the case. Hanson signed for $2 million, but has a chance to earn more in incentives based on his performance. He posted a 5.42 ERA in 72 innings last season.
|Rangers bring in Tommy Hanson on minor-league deal |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/10/14) The Rangers announced Monday they signed starting pitcher Tommy Hanson to a minor-league contract, which includes an invitation to spring training, according to MLB.com.
Hanson went 4-3 with a 5.42 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in his only season with the Angels in 2013. However, he won at least 10 games for four straight seasons with the Braves from 2009-12.
|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.
