Tampa Bay activated Ryan Hanigan from the disabled list after the veteran catcher missed six weeks with a strained oblique muscle.

Hanigan suffered the injury before the All-Star break and initially tried to avoid the disabled list, which now seems kind of silly considering he missed more than a month of action.

Acquired from the Reds this offseason after posting a .360 on-base percentage through his first seven seasons in the majors, Hanigan hit just .212 with a .309 on-base percentage in 61 games before the injury.

He’ll likely split time with Jose Molina down the stretch.

    Great, lets hope he can do better than barely outplaying Jose Molina and maybe less injured than him too. This trade has turned to dirt very quickly – Hanigan and Heath Bell in the same deal.
