Ryan Hanigan rejoins Rays after six weeks on disabled list

1 Comment

Tampa Bay activated Ryan Hanigan from the disabled list after the veteran catcher missed six weeks with a strained oblique muscle.

Hanigan suffered the injury before the All-Star break and initially tried to avoid the disabled list, which now seems kind of silly considering he missed more than a month of action.

Acquired from the Reds this offseason after posting a .360 on-base percentage through his first seven seasons in the majors, Hanigan hit just .212 with a .309 on-base percentage in 61 games before the injury.

He’ll likely split time with Jose Molina down the stretch.
