Hanson agrees to Minor League contract with Rangers
The Rangers have agreed to terms with pitcher Tommy Hanson on a Minor League contract. He will come into Spring Training as a candidate for the rotation. The deal is pending on a physical scheduled for Tuesday.
Hanson was 4-3 with a 5.42 ERA in 13 starts and two relief appearances for the Angels last season while being sidelined from June 21 to July 23 with a strained right forearm. He was a prominent member of the Braves rotation from 2009-12 and was 45-32 with a 3.61 ERA in 108 starts.
