The Angels have placed 26-year old righty starting pitcher Tommy Hanson on the 15-day disabled list due to a right forearm injury. Hanson has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 4-2 with a 5.10 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP. Hanson has given up 57 hits (9 homers) and 17 walks while whiffing 33 batters in his first 47 2/3 innings this year for the Angels. Hanson started 3 games in June and he was 2-0 despite having a 7.43 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP. The Angels shouldn’t rush Hanson back this time, as they don’t need him hurting himself upon his return to action.
