Braves RHP Hanson has slight cuff tear, no surgery

- Associated Press - Friday, August 26, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) - Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson has a slight tear in his right rotator cuff that does not need surgery, and the team is hoping he can return in the next few weeks.

Hanson has been on the disabled list since Aug. 7 because of soreness in his shoulder. He had an MRI exam Friday and the Braves said it showed a small tear that is common with pitchers.

The Braves said Hanson will continue with his rehabilitation and consult with Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

Hanson is 11-7 with a 3.60 ERA in 22 starts.
