The Braves will show caution with Tommy Hanson as he recovers from a mild concussion that he suffered when he was involved in a one-car accident early Monday morning.
Hanson was diagnosed with a Grade 1 concussion, which ranks as the lowest on the scale. The 25-year-old pitcher will be evaluated again after he has a chance to rest for 48 hours. He will gradually progress toward normal activity once he is no longer showing any concussion symptoms.
As long as Hanson does not suffer any setbacks, he could begin participating in workouts again by this weekend or early next week. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez does not believe this will put the 25-year-old pitcher behind schedule.
