KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson is being checked for a possible concussion after blowing a tire on his way to the first workout of spring training.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez says he got a call from Hanson shortly after 7 a.m. Monday. The right-hander wrecked near the team's Disney World training complex and apparently bumped his head on the steering wheel or windshield.
Hanson had his vehicle towed to a repair shop and showed up in the clubhouse before the start of the workout, with no visible injuries. But the team's medical staff decided to send to a doctor to make sure he didn't sustain a concussion.
If everything checks out OK, Hanson should be back on the field in the next day or two.
