Bucs await word on Hansen


CHICAGO — Craig Hansen underwent tests on his neck, shoulder and upper back today in Pittsburgh, but the results were not immediately available.

“It could be tomorrow,” general manager Neal Huntington said via e-mail.

Hansen went on the disabled list with spasms in his neck. Last week, he had a setback while rehabbing at the Pirates’ facility in Bradenton, Fla.
