Tommy Hanson Makes Strong Rehab Start in Triple-A

Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Tommy Hanson may come back from the disabled list Friday after he threw five shutout innings for Triple-A Gwinnett.

Hanson scattered three hits over five innings on Sunday, providing the Braves with the problem everyone wants to have – having too much pitching.

Atlanta could go with a six-man rotation, citing Ben Sheets' injury history and Tim Hudson's bothersome ankle, but the problem there is that the Braves would either be down a reliever or a bench player.

The easiest solution may be to move Kris Medlen back to the bullpen, but only because that is where he's had the most experience. The Braves have won the last 14 games he has started.

Braves 101 will be on top of any rotation changes as soon as they happen.
