Tommy Hanson was scratched from last night’s start against the Tigers with soreness in his forearm. Now it’s gonna cost him at least a couple of weeks: The Angels have placed Hanson on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm injury.

Hanson has an ERA of 5.10 and a 33/17 K/BB ratio in 47 and two-thirds innings this season and missed a huge chunk of time while dealing with family and personal problems. Just a lost year for the guy.

    In case nobody noticed the pirates have the best record in the league.

      Kudos to the Pirates. Truly. I hope they can keep it up.

      But I would be remiss if I did not point out the fact your comment has about as much to do with Tommy Hanson as it has to do with the musical group Hanson. Which is to say, not at all.

      (And this is coming from a guy who makes a habit of posting comments that seem to come out of left field.)

    The additions to the pitching staff this season in Anaheim have to rank amongst the worst ever.

    Per BIS data posted at, Hanson’s average fastball velocity peaked in 2010 at 92.7 mph but has fallen every year since then and now is at 88.9 mph. It may be more than a lost year for this guy.

    Angels…call the Yankees, Hughes and Joba can be in your dugout and bullpen for a song.

    When an organization renowned for developing pitchers and also adept at foisting off the less accomplished ones offers you a starting pitcher in his prime for nothing more than an erratic reliever…..what do you expect ?
