Ryan Hanigan‘s strained oblique muscle didn’t get any better during the All-Star break, so the Rays have placed the catcher on the disabled list retroactive to July 9.
Tampa Bay acquired Hanigan from Cincinnati in December and quickly signed him to a contract extension, valuing his combination of pitch-framing and a .360 career on-base percentage. However, he’s hit just .212 with a .309 on-base percentage in 61 games for the Rays, who’ll now use Jose Molina again as their primary catcher.
