Former Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson is in a coma at an Atlanta-area hospital, according to media reports.

The Braves nor any other Major League club have put out a statement. After pitching in Atlanta from 2009 to 2012, Hanson spent 2013 with the Los Angeles Angels. The White Sox took a chance on him in 2014, though ne never got past Triple-A. Hanson was with the San Francisco Giants' High- and Triple-A affiliates this past year.

We can only hope Tommy is OK. Stay tuned for updates.
