Following up on Tommy Hanson’s car wreck from yesterday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that Hanson has a mild concussion and should miss a few days of workouts. David O’Brien of the AJC adds that it’s a Grade 1 concussion, which is the least serious flavor of concussion.

He came to camp this morning but was sent home.  Bowman says that, assuming he can resume workouts over the weekend or by early next week, he should be able to stay on schedule.  Any more than that and he’ll miss game time.

Not a great way for Hanson to start the season after having much of last year derailed by shoulder problems.

    Yesterday Tommy Hanson had a “minor accident.” Today, he had a “car wreck.” Tomorrow, it will have been a ten-car pileup that skews the morbidity tables.

    Even so, it’s nice to think that even something as inorganic as a car accident can continue to evolve. It’s the sort of revelation that could really put the creationists back on their heels.

      Or, it will just be the premise for another movie about giant robots invading Earth.

    Any concussion not incurred from Mt Biking or a drunken redneck stunt is not a good concussion.
