Hanson started the season with a strong first half, but since the All-Star break, he's posted 5.69 ERA and a 3-5 record. His struggles might have made Tuesday his last appearance of 2012, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
"Wasn’t the way I wanted to end it," said Hanson, who allowed a Starling Marte double to start the first inning and a run in each of the first two innings. "The first two innings were tough, and then so was that fifth. Not the way I wanted to finish, but it is what it is. And I’ve got to try to learn from it and try to make adjustments and try to get better."
