Braves Pitcher Tommy Hanson Has Mild Concussion

New, 50 comments

After reports surfaced of his auto accident yesterday, most of Braves Nation has been waiting timidly to see what the extent of Tommy Hanson's injuries would be. David O'Brien of the AJC has this report via twitter:

The good news is that this seems mild by all accounts of the reporting. Hanson may lose a couple of days of drills, but he should be on schedule to return by the end of the week. (Actually, this is a mildly inventive way to get out of PFP.)

Hopefully this will not linger, as post-concussion symptoms sometimes can, and Tommy will feel no ill effects throughout the rest of spring training and the regular season.
