Game 18: vs. MIA
Looks like Ryan Hanigan’s thumb isn’t doing well today. Dusty Baker waited longer than usual before writing out the lineup because he wanted to see how Hanigan was feeling. Devin Mesoraco starts instead… it’s a rarity for Bronson Arroyo to not have Hanigan as a battery mate.
UPDATE — The last time Arroyo didn’t have Hanigan catching for him was Sept. 27, 2011, vs. the Mets. Mesoraco, a September call-up that year, was behind the plate.
