Tommy Hanson Called Up

The Atlanta Braves are calling up Tommy Hanson to start a game this weekend. Hanson should be effective immediately, and is a potential future star. He dominated the Arizona Fall League, and has continued that dominance at AAA this year, with an incredible 90 strikeouts and 17 walks in 66.1 innings pitched. I expect him to strike out close to a batter per inning in the majors. He will probably have mediocre control initially, but the strikeouts will more than make up for that.
