Hanigan (groin) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Hanigan is back with the big club after a brief stay on the shelf with a groin strain. The 37-year-old has appeared in just 29 games for the Rockies this season, compiling a .250/.311/.333 line with two homers. He'll return to his role as a reserve catcher for the Rockies down the stretch.
Hanigan was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain. Hanigan said he was "a little banged up" over the weekend, according to Nick Groke of The Denver Post, so the Rockies decided to give him some time on the shelf to get better. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined at this point, but the Rockies won't miss him much given the recent addition of Jonathan Lucroy. Tony Wolters was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque and will serve as the backup to Lucroy until Hanigan is back.
Hanigan has a strained groin, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports. Hanigan remarked that he's "a little banged up" and, as such, should be considered day-to-day heading into Tuesday's series opener against the Royals. The catcher doesn't play much anyway -- he only has 96 at-bats this year -- so any absence won't have much, if any, fantasy impact.
Hanigan (illness) is starting at catcher and hitting eighth Sunday against the Brewers. He has not played since Aug. 13 as he dealt with a stomach bug but will catch lefty Kyle Freeland in the series finale against Milwaukee. Hanigan is hitting .270 in 37 at-bats since the All-Star break.
Hanigan was scratched from the Rockies' Thursday lineup with a stomach bug, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. He'll give way to Jonathan Lucroy, who loses his day off. Hanigan may take at least another day to recover, so NL-only players may have to wait to get a contribution from him.
