Atlanta’s Hanson yet to pass concussion test

Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson did stretching exercises with his teammates on Tuesday but he could not pitch to batters because he has yet to pass a concussion test.

Hanson, 25, plans to retake the test on Thursday, and if he passes it, he can return to his regular routine.

Hanson sustained what was called a Grade-1 concussion as a result of an automobile accident on Feb. 20.

Hanson has done some long-distance throwing, hurling a series of balls from distances of 90, 120 and 150 feet. He hopes to be able to throw off a mound on Wednesday.
