It's Hanigan's turn again
Addressing the opening comment from the Volquez posting…yes, Ryan Hanigan is catching again for Bronson Arroyo tonight in the series opener vs. the Pirates. Of course, that’s no shock considering he’s caught all four of Arroyo’s previous starts. Hanigan has hit .357 (5-for-14) in those games.
LF Chris Dickerson, who suffered a head injury on Monday, isn’t back in there but that has more to do with the Pirates starting lefty Zach Duke.
UPDATE: Dusty Baker said that Dickerson would likely start on Saturday vs. RHP Russ Ohlendorf. Dickerson took BP on Wednesday and was cleared to play as early as today.
“My vision really hasn’t been a problem but it is processing small stuff,” Dickerson said. “Everything is much better. I’m ready to go. I’m back with no lingering dizziness or symptoms in effect. No post-concussion syndrome effects.”
