Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that Tommy Hanson worked out at Braves camp today and is feeling good. This a week after a minor auto accident that left him with a Grade 1 concussion.
Hanson hopes to be cleared for full workouts tomorrow. Assuming no further hiccups, he’ll be on schedule to start the season on time.
Oh, and if you want to buy the Infinity M45 he wrecked, it’s for sale. He says he’ll do the $8,000 worth of repairs it will take to fix it, then you can have it. In terms of appeal, it has to be on par with Jon Voight’s Chrysler LeBaron.
ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Diamondbacks have signed outfielder Jarrod Dyson to a two-year contract. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the deal is worth $7.5 million.
Dyson, 33, spent last season with the Mariners. He hit an underwhelming .251/.324/.350, but stole 28 bases while playing superb defense in center field.
Dyson doesn’t quite make up for the Diamondbacks losing J.D. Martinez, who just signed with the Red Sox, but he will bring some speed and defense to the outfield along with A.J. Pollock. It’s not quite clear how the D-Backs plan to utilize Dyson. That should be made clear after the deal is announced.
