Double A righthander Craig Hansen would have been called up Thursday, except the club has shut him down until later this week with what GM Theo Epstein called a ''mild case' of dead arm. Hansen went nearly two months between pitching for St. John's and debuting with the Sox' Gulf Coast team in early August. Hansen hasn't pitched since Friday and is scheduled to begin throwing again sometime in the coming days, probably this Friday.
Shot in the arm?
