Tommy Hanson leaves game with triceps tightness

15 Comments

Ruh-roh for the Angels:

ESPN’s Jim Bowden says that Hanson “grabbed his shoulder.” It’s officially being called “triceps tightness.”

Not good. Especially given how poorly he’s pitched so far this spring and the injury issues which have dogged him the past couple of seasons.

UPDATE, 6:15 PM: According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, Hanson said after the game that he feels “fine.” There is no MRI scheduled and the 26-year-old righty expects to make his next Cactus League start.

Freddie Freeman’s X-rays come back negative

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
