SEATTLE (AP) -- Atlanta right-hander Tommy Hanson was activated
from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday to start against the
Seattle Mariners.

Hanson (8-4) had not pitched since June 12 when he beat Houston
4-1 and limited the Astros to just three hits in seven innings
while striking out 14. A day later, he went on the disabled list
with right shoulder tendinitis.

The 24-year-old currently leads the NL in opponents batting
average (.189) and is third in ERA at 2.48. After starting the
season 1-3, Hanson has won seven of his last eight decisions,
including three straight.

Right-hander Jairo Asencio was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett to
make room for Hanson. Asencio was recalled by the Braves on June
17. He's appeared in six games this season.
