Ryan Hanigan C BOS 5 Days

The Padres traded Hanigan to the Red Sox on Friday for third baseman Will Middlebrooks, MLB.com reports.

Two days after the Rays shipped Hanigan to San Diego, the Padres flipped the 34-year-old to Boston for yet another power bat in Middlebrooks. Hanigan hit just .218/.318/.324 in 84 games last season, his first in the American League, but his value comes in the form of pitch framing and defense. Look for Hanigan to play second fiddle to Christian Vazquez in the early going this upcoming season.

The Rays agreed to trade Hanigan, along with Wil Myers, to the Padres on Wednesday as part of three-team deal with the Nationals, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports.

The prize acquisition for San Diego is clearly Myers, but Hanigan makes for a decent enough throw-in for a Padres team that recently dealt Yasmani Grandal and is looking to compete right away. Touted mostly for his pitch-framing and defensive abilities, Hanigan also has a .353 OPS for his career, though those skills have waned in recent seasons. Regardless, the 34-year-old Hanigan figures to see most of the playing time behind the plate in 2015, but he still won't be much of a fantasy option even in the deepest two-catcher leagues.

Hanigan is out of the lineup Sunday at the Indians, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Hanigan had started three games in a row before this, so he might just be taking a breather while Jose Molina tries to increase his extra base hit total to more than two.

Hanigan was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to a sore toe, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

A Brad Boxberger fastball plunked Hanigan on the toe Tuesday night, and while he was able to stay in the game, it seems his soreness worsened overnight. Curt Casali will fill in Wednesday, while Hanigan should be considered questionable heading into Thursday's series finale.

Hanigan was scratched from the starting lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Hanigan is out of the lineup Friday against the White Sox, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

This looks like nothing more than a routine day off for Hanigan, following back-to-back starts in the final two games against the Yankees. Jose Molina will step in to catch starter Jeremy Hellickson.

Hanigan is not in the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Hanigan will sit in favor of Jose Molina for the second time in three days, with an early afternoon game on tap following a night game. The 34-year-old Hanigan homered Friday for the first time since June 16 and is now batting .305 since his return from the DL.

Hanigan went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 1-0 victory over the Blue Jays.

In a fairly rare display of power, Hanigan provided the only run of this contest with his third-inning blast off of Blue Jays' lefty J.A. Happ. The veteran catcher has been swinging the bat well so far here in the season's last month, going 8-for-25 with five RBI across 10 games (seven starts).

Hanigan is out of the lineup again Sunday.

Hanigan will sit for the second straight day Sunday, with Jose Molina starting behind the plate while Curt Casali caught Saturday's contest. There's no indication of an injury for the veteran catcher, but with three backstops on the roster in September, it's possible Hanigan will see less playing time.
