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.


Great move; imagine the contract would become a major league deal if he works out.

I can remember thinking, as recently as 2 years ago that the Rangers should have insisted upon receiving Hanson rather the Harrison in the Texeira trade. He was pretty highly regarded then, hopefully he can return to form and resurrect his career.
