Well, it was said Ryan Hanigan had been nursing an injured thumb, but it appears that Hani is yet another Red to hit the disabled list, but for another reason…a strained oblique. Corky Miller has been called up from Louisville to take Hanigan’s spot on the 25-man and Nick Masset was moved to the 60-day DL to clear a 40-man spot for Corky.
Hanigan has struggled this season posting a triple slash of .079/.182/.079 and has only 3 hits in 44 plate appearances.
For those that have longed for Devin Mesoraco to get playing time, here ya go. He did a fantastic job yesterday in catching Bronson Arroyo for only his third time. That’s a battery we’ll see a little more now.
What will be the most intriguing battery will be that of Mes and Mat Latos. I say this only because Hanigan has caught all four times Latos has pitched this season. Mesoraco caught Latos three times last season.
