Braves right-hander Tommy Hanson left the team on Tuesday to return to Atlanta and have his ailing right shoulder examined. The Braves will bump him from his scheduled start on Friday and have him penciled in to pitch Tuesday against the Giants.

"They'll do the whole workup on him and see what's there, see if there's a problem," manager Fredi Gonzalez told reporters, including David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "No matter how the evaluation goes, we're going to go ahead and bump him back."

Hanson lasted just 3 1/3 innings on Saturday against the Mets, allowing seven runs on eight hits.

Hanson went on the disabled list in June for rotator cuff tendinitis. Hanson is 1-3 with a 8.10 ERA in his five starts since the All-Star break and was 10-4 with a 2.44 ERA before the break.

Mike Minor, who started in Jair Jurrjens place in the rotation on Sunday in New York, will start on Friday. Jurrjens went on the disabled list with a right knee sprain.

Hanson leaves Braves to have shoulder examined

That was actually Minor's 15th major league start on Sunday. He had 8 starts last year and started the year with the Braves and was up again earlier this year, I think when Hanson was on the DL.
