by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers unload disappointing Tommy Hanson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) 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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Tommy Hanson surrenders two runs in spring debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) 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."

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.
