From Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution comes word that Braves right-hander Tommy Hanson completed his “third and final” bullpen session Saturday in Atlanta and plans to head to Orlando next week to begin making appearances in instructional league games.

Hanson has been sidelined since the first week of August due to a slight undersurface tear in his right rotator cuff. The 25-year-old starter is hoping to return to the bigs before the end of the regular season so that he can prove his health before the playoffs begin. He wants to be a member of the postseason rotation. And the Braves probably want that even more.

Hanson had an ace-like 3.60 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 142/46 K/BB ratio in 130 innings before the injury.
