Bad news for the Braves -- Tommy Hanson has been scratched from his start on Friday with right shoulder tendonitis. The team will continue to evaluate him over the next couple of days and probably keep their fingers crossed that it goes away.
The good news is Braves fans will get a chance to see right-hander Randall Delgado, who will start in his place against the Rangers at Turner Field on Friday.
Hanson has been spectacular this season, going 8-4 with a 2.48 ERA in 14 starts, with a 1.042 WHIP. His six hits per nine innings leads the National League. Batters are hitting just .189/.268/.303 against the 24-year-old this season.
Delgado will be making his big-league debut. The 21-year-old is 4-4 with a 3.54 ERA in 13 starts at Double-A Mississippi. Delgado was named the team's No. 3 prospect by Baseball America before the season, behind Julio Teheran and Freddie Freeman. The native of Panama led the Carolina League in strikeouts (120) last season despite being promoted in July. He recorded 162 strikeouts overall, the most in the Braves' system.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
