Craig Hansen Hurt By Sleep Disorder?

Hansen underwent a procedure today which was meant to cure the sleep apnea. The sleep disorder has reportedly caused Hansen to be exhausted for during much of his activities throughout the day. Whether this will cause his control issues has yet to be seen, however.

Hansen's still got potential. He can throw the ball 98 mph, and has a slider gets up to about 88 mph. But at age 23, it will be hard to talk about Hansen's "potential" for many more years. If Hansen can't walk less than a better every other inning at the Triple-A level, he'll never have much of a future in the majors.

Wow, we've waited for "can't miss Hansen" for so long. I wish him the best...a breathing disorder is serious. Thanks, Ethan, for the link. Peter N.

Wishful thinking. He still might be good or even great but it won't be cuz he had his sleep apnea corrected.

I didn't say, or mean that he'll be good now because of the procedure. All I said is that the sleep disorder may have hurt his ability to function in everyday activities. I apologize if that wasn't clear.

You were clear...he hasn't had the mound excellence...maybe he never will in the big leagues....

If you are suffering from sleep problems such as insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea, you need to consider this problem seriously and adopt specific measures at the earliest to get back your sleep. Regular exercising is one of the options to ensure sound sleep at night. Altogether, if you are unable to get adequate sleep during night, you can undertake certain initiatives to overcome your sleep problems such as fixing your sleeping as well as waking schedule and abstaining from alcohol, nicotine, tea, coffee et al before hitting the bed.
