Description: Red Sox catcher Ryan Hanigan will inherit the starting role now that Christian Vazquez has been placed on the 60-day disabled list.
Insight: The 34-year-old Hanigan has little fantasy value after batting .218 last season in 225 at-bats. It shouldn't be long before top prospect, Blake Swihart, gets a chance behind the plate.

Description: Rays catcher Ryan Hanigan is questionable for Friday's game against Baltimore.
Insight: The 33-year-old Hanigan splits time with Jose Molina, but neither backstop is fantasy worthy.
5/17/2014 10:25:00 AM
Description: Rays catcher Ryan Hanigan left Friday night's game due to cramping in right leg and is questionable for Saturday's game against the LA Angels.
Insight: The 33-year-old Hanigan shouldn be considered day-to-day. He's batting .238 with three homers and 22 RBI this season. Jose Molina would go if Hanigan gets the day off, but he has no fantasy value with his .128 batting average.

Description: Rays catcher Ryan Hanigan hit two balls out of the park and drove in six runs Saturday against the Yankees.
Insight: The 33-year-old Hanigan had no more than two homers in each of the last two seasons with Cincinnati but he now has three in his first 37 at-bats with Tampa Bay.

Description: The Rays acquired Ryan Hanigan in a trade Tuesday and then signed him to a three-year, $10.75 million contract. SOURCE: Buster Olney, ESPN
Insight: Hanigan came over as part of the Heath Bell trade. The best the light-hitting Hanigan can hope for is a timeshare behind the plate with Jose Molina.

Description: Reds C Ryan Hanigan was placed on the diabled list on Thursday with a sprained left wrist.
Insight: Hanigan has proven to be of little value to fantasy owners offensively, batting .193 with a .569 OPS. His absence will offer more of an opportunity for Devin Mesoraco to garner more playing time, although he is playing through a sore back and doesn't appear to offer much either.
8/6/2010 5:19:00 PM
Description: Reds C Ryan Hanigan hit his third homer of the season, a 2-run shot, as the Reds beat the Cubs.
Insight: Hanigan actually has value in leagues that use OBP, as he gets on base at a .406 clip.
6/9/2010 10:26:00 PM
Description: The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Hanigan (thumb) is progressing well from a fractured left thumb.
Insight: Hanigan was placed on the DL on May 29, and will be reassessed after undergoing x-rays on Friday. (

Description: Hanigan broke out of a slump with three singles in four at bats. He scored twice.
Insight: Hanigan only had one hit in his last 15 at bats. He is still hitting .323 on the season and .333 in July. In 164 at bats, he has one homer, but he could help with average. (
Steady6/14/2009 10:02:00 AM
Description: Hanigan went 2-for-4 against the Royals and is now hitting .319.
Insight: With Ramon Hernandez starting regularly at first base, Hanigan has received extended playing time. He has just one homer, but his average could be useful in NL-only leagues or two-catcher leagues. (
