After being scratched from yesterday’s start with forearm soreness Tommy Hanson underwent an MRI exam and the Angels right-hander has been diagnosed with a forearm strain.
Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that he’ll be shut down completely for at least seven days and the current expectation is that Hanson will miss three weeks overall.
Hanson, who was acquired from the Braves in November for reliever Jordan Walden, has struggled with a 5.10 ERA and 33/17 K/BB ratio in 48 innings. Not only are those by far the worst ERA and strikeout rate of his career, Hanson’s average fastball has declined from 92.7 miles per hour in 2010 to 88.5 mph this year. He hasn’t been right for a while now.
