After a report out of the Dominican said that Alen Hanson would undergo surgery in the United States for his injured right hand, Hanson’s agent took to Twitter with an update that had much better news. Hanson’s injury won’t require surgery and he will miss “at least three weeks”. From the sound of it, that means he will return to play winter ball this year. The injury occurred last Sunday when Hanson was hit on the hand by a pitch from Daniel Cabrera. He immediately left the game and was wearing a cast the next day.
Update on Alen Hanson @AlenHanson92 for those interested: no operation necessary. Finger is a bit banged up expected out at least 3 weeks.
