Hanigan logged just five at-bats since returning from the disabled list in early September.

EDGE Analysis

That being said, the veteran did notch three hits in those five at-bats, but the presence of Jonathan Lucroy really hurt Hanigan's value. His .267 batting average on the season was his best mark in that category since 2012 when he was still with the Reds, but he still seems more like a backup catcher heading into 2018. His value hinges on where he signs in free agency during the offseason.

Hanigan (groin) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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, of a fantasy impact.

Hanigan (illness) is starting at catcher and hitting eighth Sunday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Hanigan went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs during Wednesday's win over San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

The backstop has been playing semi-regularly since being recalled to the majors June 30, but this was his first multi-hit showing. In fact, Hanigan went just 3-for-20 through his previous six starts. Still, calling Coors Field home is a nice fantasy bonus, so Hanigan has some appeal in cavernous setups.

Hanigan (back) is starting behind the dish and hitting eighth Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

He missed the last three games while dealing with back spasms, but was able to get back in the fold in the final game of the first half. Hanigan could end up losing his spot on the 25-man roster when the Rockies are ready to give Tom Murphy the promotion from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Hanigan was scratched from a scheduled start Friday against the White Sox due to upper back spasms, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given that Tony Wolters is the primary catcher for Colorado, most people didn't bat an eye when Hanigan was left out of the lineup Friday, but it seems that an injury is lingering enough to keep him on the bench. Despite the absence, the veteran backstop nor the team think that the ailment is very serious, so it's unlikely that he'll spend any time on the disabled list, especially with the All-Star break coming up. Consider him day-to-dya for the time being, with Tony Wolters continuing to shoulder a bigger workload in the meantime.

Hanigan was called back up to the Rockies on Friday, and will start behind the plate during the series opener against Arizona, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque in mid-June, but is seemingly back up with the big-league team and catching Jon Gray on Friday. The 36-year-old has spent 13 games with Colorado this season, hitting .256/.304/.395 with two home runs and eight RBI.
