Hanigan (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment soon and is likely to rejoin the Red Sox when rosters expand next month, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

For now, the Red Sox are getting by Sandy Leon and Bryan Holaday -- two catchers that were completely off the radar at the start of the season. Hanigan will be a helpful contributor, who knows the staff well and is considered a good game caller.

Hanigan (ankle) was placed on the disabled list following Friday night's game against the Dodgers, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Sox are calling it tendinitis in his left ankle, an injury whose genesis was Thursday night in Seattle when he caught the ankle in an awkward position. Hanigan's playing time has dwindled, partly due to the phenomenal hitting of Sandy Leon, but also because his bat has been cool. He's 2-for-25 since returning from a month-long stay on the disabled list due to a neck strain, and is hitting just .158 on the season with a .437 OPS. With Hanigan out of commission for a bit, the Red Sox claimed Bryan Holaday off waivers from Texas and will join the team Saturday.

Hanigan (ankle) has a left ankle injury, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan is not in Friday's lineup against the Dodgers and while he is not the Red Sox everyday man behind the plate, an ankle injury could have something to do with him riding the bench. It does not appear to be a serious issue as there have been no MRI's or X-rays scheduled but it is something to keep an eye on in the coming days.

Hanigan will need another couple of days before he fully recovers from flu-like symptoms, Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan was a late scratch from Tuesday's game and sat out another Wednesday, though manager John Farrell said he was available "in an emergency." This means Sandy Leon will be the starting backstop until Hanigan is ready for a full nine innings.

Hanigan (illness) was a late scratch to the lineup Tuesday, going down with flu-like symptoms, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan was originally slotted to catch knuckleballer Steven Wright, which he has done most of this season when he's been healthy. In his place, the Red Sox plugged in Sandy Leon behind the plate against the Tigers on Tuesday. Hanigan will be considered day-to-day.

Hanigan will get the start at catcher for Thursday's game against the Twins, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

When Hanigan's been healthy this season, he has normally caught the knuckleballer Steven Wright, who is on the mound Thursday. The 35-year-old has only played in four games since the beginning of June, but will give Sandy Leon a day off for the series opener against Minnesota.

Hanigan went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Boston's 11-6 win over Texas on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan was making his first start since being activated off the disabled list, getting the assignment of catching the knuckleballer Steven Wright. He'll get at least two-to-three starts per week, but is considered the backup to Sandy Leon at this time.

Hanigan will start Wednesday night with knuckleballer Steven Wright on the mound, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan had been catching most of Wright's start prior to his recent DL stint. Additionally, manager John Farrell said he sees Sandy Leon catching at least three of every five games. That will limit Hanigan to a handful of at-bats each week.
