Description: Rangers castoff Tommy Hanson has caught on with the White Sox. SOURCE: Jon Heyman, CBS Sports
Insight: It's a minor league contract. Hanson was a total disaster in Anaheim last season (4-3, 5.42 ERA) and was just as bad with Texas during spring training (0-2, 6.43). It's going to take a lot for him to get back on the fantasy radar.

Description: The Rangers have released Tommy Hanson rather than guaranteeing his $500,000 salary (which would have grown to $2 million on Opening Day), according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: Hanson signed a minor league deal with Texas in the offseason and put up a 6.43 ERA in 14 innings this spring. Hanson was very good his first three years in the majors, going 32-22 with a 3.28 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP, but he went 17-13 with a 4.76 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP the last two seasons. It's evidence of how far he has fallen that he was unable to crack the Rangers depleted rotation over Joe Saunders or Robbie Ross.

Description: According to T.R. Sullivan of mlb.com, the Rangers have to decide by Wednesday if they are going to guarantee Tommy Hanson's contract.

His 2009 rookie season was his best when he went 11-4 with a 2.89 ERA and 1.183 WHIP.
