CBSSports is reporting the Angels have sent reliever Jordan Walden to the Atlanta Braves for starting pitcher Tommy Hanson

Jon Heyman from CBSSports is reporting the Los Angeles Angels have sent right-handed reliever Jordan Walden to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for starting pitcher Tommy Hanson.

The Angels were rumored to have been actively trying to deal the former closer for a starting pitcher. Walden became expendable after the Angels signed Ryan Madson earlier this week.

Hanson is first-year arbitration eligible and under team control until 2016. MLBTraderumors.com projects Hanson will get $4M in arbitration:

Hanson, 26, pitched better than his 4.48 ERA but allowed a lot of hits and home runs in a disappointing campaign. The team's Opening Day starter, he missed some time with a back strain this season and his average fastball velocity fell below 90 miles per hour for the first season in his career. He still managed a healthy strikeout rate at 8.3 per nine innings.
