Hanigan is expected to be on the shelf until roughly mid-June, so the Red Sox will elect to use his 40-man roster spot on the newly-acquired Luis Jimenez.

Hanigan (hand) is expected to be out until at least the All-Star break, MLB.com's Ian Browne reports.

He had surgery Saturday and we now have a firm timetable on his recovery. Blake Swihart, who was called up this weekend, will see the bulk of the work at catcher in the meantime and could hold onto the starting role even once Hanigan is healthy.

Hanigan (hand) was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday.

While Hanigan is without a set timetable for his return from a fractured right hand, he is expected to miss well beyond the minimum 15 days required by his DL stint, with manager John Farrell saying Friday night that Hanigan will miss "a substantial amount of time." Blake Swihart was recalled in a corresponding move and will likely serve as the top option behind the plate for Boston.

Hanigan suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right hand Friday night and is expected to need surgery, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

The Red Sox will be without Hanigan for "a substantial amount of time," according to manager John Farrell, after the 34-year-old was hit on the hand by a foul ball while behind the plate Friday. With Hanigan joining Christian Vazquez (elbow) on the shelf, the door may be open for prospect Blake Swihart to come up and serve as the primary option ahead of Sandy Leon.

Hanigan went 1-for-1 with two runs scored and was hit by a pitch twice in the Red Sox's win over Baltimore on Monday.

Although he was held out of the lineup with right hand soreness Sunday, Hanigan was healthy enough to play in Monday's rain-shortened contest. He'll continue to share time with Sandy Leon, likely until the Red Sox promote top prospect Blake Swihart.

Hanigan went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run - his first of the year - in the Red Sox 3-2 win over Baltimore on Friday night.

With Christian Vazquez out for the season, Boston will hope to get some offensive production out of the light-hitting Hanigan, but his value in fantasy circles is probably still pretty limited.

Hanigan is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals, according to CSN's Sean McAdam.

Hanigan, who has walked seven times despite recording just one hit in 15 at-bats, will be held out with the Red Sox playing a day game following a night game. Sandy Leon will be Boston's starting catcher Monday.
