TEMPE, Ariz. – Los Angeles Angels starter Tommy Hanson was pulled because of tightness in his right triceps as he warmed up for the fourth inning in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Cleveland Indians.
Hanson said he thought he was taken out for precautionary reasons. The right-hander said he felt the best he has all spring.
Hanson, acquired in an offseason deal with Atlanta, allowed three hits and two runs with four strikeouts in his fourth spring start.
Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer allowed five hits and four runs in three innings in the roughest outing of six appearances.
Michael Brantley had three hits for Cleveland.
