Tommy Hanson Car Accident: Braves Pitcher In Hospital For Evaluation

Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson was involved in a car accident Monday morning:

While none of the initial reports indicates it was too serious, Hanson decided to err on the side of caution and head to a local hospital near their spring training complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Hanson, a 6'6 220 right-hander from Tulsa, Okla., has been one of the Braves' best starting pitchers since stepping into the starting rotation in 2009, when he finished third in the NL Rookie of the Year voting.

The 25-year-old has a career ERA of 3.21 in 460 innings for Atlanta over the last three seasons and is expected to be an integral piece of the Braves' starting rotation this season.
