Ryan Hanigan C TB 6 Months

ESPN's Buster Olney expected the Reds to either non-tender or trade Ryan Hanigan following the signing of Brayan Pena.

Hanigan is arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter after earning $2.05 million during a disappointing 2013 season that saw him bat just .198/.306/.261 over 75 contests. He's a career .262/.359/.343 hitter, though, and offers strong defense, so the Reds should find a taker. Olney notes that the Yankees and Rays have been interested in Hanigan in the past.

Ryan Hanigan (wrist) is expected to be activated from the disable list on Thursday.

It's the first day he's eligible. "He's doing very well," Reds athletic trainer Paul Lessard said. "His catching with the left hand, and moving the glove has been fine. It's just the velocity of his swing and the force on his hand, which is kind of in question." Devin Mesoraco has been swinging a hot bat, so the Reds can afford to ease Hanigan back into things if they want.
