Hanigan hurt his hand
Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan was in the original starting lineup Monday, but was scratched during the afternoon and replaced by Devin Mesoraco. It appears Hanigan has hurt his left hand.
“I strained something in my hand. I’m going to see the doctor,” Hanigan said. “I did it swinging, yesterday.”
Hanigan wasn’t sure when he would be examined by the Brewers team doctor.
UPDATE: Hanigan has an irritation in his left wrist. X-rays were negative.
This season, Hanigan is batting .196 in 45 games. He also caught Homer Bailey’s no-hitter on Tuesday. Bailey is starting again tonight.
Hanigan already missed time on the disabled list from April 21-May 10 with a strained left oblique and a sore right thumb.
Mesoraco hasn’t been 100 percent after missing Saturday and Sunday vs. Seattle with back spasms.
