ATLANTA — Former Altanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson, 29, has died.
According to yahoo.com, Hanson was in a coma after being moved to Atlanta’s Piedmont Hospital late Monday morning due to “catastrophic organ failure.”
Hanson was moved to Atlanta’s Piedmont Hospital so doctors could run a variety of tests to determine why his organs failed.
Hanson’s problems started early Sunday morning when Hanson was rushed to a nearby hospital after he started having trouble breathing.
Hanson began his Major League Baseball debut with the Atlanta Braves in 2009 and last played for the team in 2012. Hanson was then traded to the Los Angeles Angels that year.
The Angels tweeted out, “Send our thoughts for former (angels) starting pitcher Tommy Hanson at this time.”
