Tommy Hanson – Starting Pitcher

2008 Season – Atlanta Braves

Tag: Tommy Hanson
Salary: $5 (automatic)
Contract: Three Years Remaining (protectable in minors)
Acquired: FAAB Acquisition July 1, 2008 ($3, Reserve)
Departed: Released July 17th, 2008

Hanson was picked up before the minor league protection deadline, and was a hot prospect because of a no-hitter the week before at AA. Then a few iffy outings and some negative reviews online took the shine off, so he was released. Hason could be the Tim Lincecum of 2006 – picked up in the minors, then released, and then I spend all offseason kicking myself for it. Hanson is viewed as one of the elite minor league pitching prospects, and is “untouchable” in Jake Peavy trade talks between the Braves and Padres. Stupid, stupid, stupid . . . and Jaime Garcia was picked up in his place!
