Tommy Hanson was bumped from the rotation and demoted to Triple-A about four weeks ago after posting a 5.69 ERA for the Angels and things haven’t gotten any better in Salt Lake.
Hanson has made four starts against Pacific Coast League hitters, allowing 14 runs in 19.2 innings while serving up five homers. It’s been a miserable season for Hanson, who’s struggled on the field and spent significant time on the bereavement list following the death of his stepbrother.
Mike Scioscia told William Boor of MLB.com that Hanson will remain at Triple-A for the PCL playoffs and then “see if he can take a step forward and we can see where he fits in on our club.” Hanson, who was acquired from the Braves in exchange for Jordan Walden, figures to be non-tendered this offseason.
