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.
 
3/26/2014 2:43:00 PM
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.
 
3/25/2014 7:10:00 PM
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.

Insight: Hanson was a valued fantasy asset during his tenure with the Braves, but his ERA has risen every year since 2009. He'll have to prove himself before we can recommend him as a fantasy option.
 
9/16/2013 7:24:00 PM
Description: The Angels recalled righthander Tommy Hanson from Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

7/23/2013 10:28:00 AM
Description: Angels starter Tommy Hanson (forearm) has been activated from the DL to start Tuesday against the Twins.

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