Tommy Hanson Switches To Scott Boras

Braves righty Tommy Hanson hired Scott Boras as his agent this month, tweets David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  Hanson had previously been with Beverly Hills Sports Council, an agency that was fractured when Dan Lozano left and took several big-name clients with him.  O'Brien notes that Boras now represents three members of the Braves' rotation, with Jair Jurrjens and Derek Lowe already in tow.  Click here to see our full list of Boras clients.

For those worried that Hanson is now less likely to sign a multiyear deal, keep in mind that that isn't really the Braves' cup of tea anyway.  Hanson will have one year and 120 days of service time after this season, so he won't be arbitration-eligible yet.  There is a possibility Hanson is arbitration-eligible after the 2011 season, if the Super Two rule remains unchanged by the new collective bargaining agreement and the cutoff keeps decreasing.  It's much too early to worry about any of that; Braves fans can rest easy knowing the team controls Hanson through 2015.
