Angels place Tommy Hanson on bereavement list

The Angels have placed Tommy Hanson on the bereavement list, meaning he'll miss Wednesday's start.

The Los Angeles Angels have placed right-handed starting pitcher Tommy Hanson on the bereavement list, according to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com. Hanson will miss a turn in the rotation as a result of the move, and Gonzalez notes that the Angels are leaning toward replacing him with swing man Jerome Williams.

The transaction was unfortunately necessitated following a death in Hanson's family. Los Angeles replaced Hanson on the roster with reliever David Carpenter, calling the right-hander from Triple-A.

Prior to the move, Hanson was slated to pitch Wednesday's finale against the Texas Rangers. Now, he'll be required to miss three to seven days as a result of his placement on the bereavement list.

Williams appears to be the favorite to fill Hanson's spot in the rotation, though he did throw 36 pitches over three innings of work on Sunday. Manager Mike Scioscia told reporters that the Angels are going to wait and see how Jerome responds from the three innings before making a decision.

The earliest Hanson will be eligible to be activated is Thursday, when the Angels start their series against the Seattle Mariners. However, there is no known time frame for return, as Los Angeles isn't sure of Hanson's schedule and when services will be held.
