Braves' Hanson has mild concussion after accident

Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson car accident on Monday.

Hanson was on his way to the club's spring training camp in Florida on Monday when a tire blew out on his vehicle. He may have hit his head on the steering wheel, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez said Tuesday that doctors diagnosed Hanson with a mild concussion, which will keep him out of workouts for a couple of days. He will then be evaluated again.

Hanson was 11-7 with a 3.60 earned run average in 22 starts last season, but missed most of the final two months because of shoulder problems.
