Former Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tommy Hanson possible cause of death is an overdose, but it has to be determined yet, authorities said.

According to Coweta County sheriff’s officials, the player wasn’t showing respiratory movement when emergency staff tried to assist him Sunday at a friend’s home near Atlanta.

On Wednesday Sheriff’s officials stated that one of the officers had a conversation with hospital emergency room workers, but it doesn’t say the subject of the conversation, or what Hanson might have taken.

The 29-year-old football player died Monday night at an Atlanta hospital.

Sheriff’s officials said, “At this time there is no indication or suspicion of foul play.”

Hanson pitched for the Atlanta Braves from 2009 to 2012, and in 2011 he was regarded as Atlanta’s top pitching prospect. He also played for the Angels in 2013. The player signed minor league contracts with the White Sox in 2014 and Giants in 2015.

The fire department, EMS staff and sheriff’s deputies were requested to the home southwest of Atlanta in Newnan on Sunday, where Hanson was hanging out with a friend, according to authorities.

The report says a 40-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman were involved in the incident. They have been cooperative with the investigation and no charges have been filed, sheriff’s officials said.

After Hanson was taken to a hospital emergency room, an overdose came up as a possibility, according to sheriff’s officials.

John Schuerholz, Braves president stated the team was “incredibly saddened” after they heard of Hanson’s death.

“He was a favorite in the clubhouse and with our staff and he will truly be missed by everyone in Braves Country,” Schuerholz said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, family, former teammates and friends.”
