Hanigan was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

With Tom Murphy (forearm) coming off the disabled list Thursday, Hanigan agreed to head back to the minors in order to clear a roster spot. He'll offer catching depth in the minors, though he likely won't return to the big-leagues unless something happens to Murphy or Tony Wolters.

Hanigan went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 5-3 win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

It's just his second homer of the season and first since his first game of the year back on May 4. Hanigan has seen little action since then, playing in only 13 games, and with Tom Murphy (forearm) close to coming off the DL the veteran catcher's time with the Rockies could be nearing its end.

Hanigan (ankle) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Cleveland, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the past six games, Hanigan returns to the lineup in the eight spot while catching Kyle Freeland on Wednesday. The 36-year-old will give Tony Wolters his first day off this month for the conclusion of the Rockies series with the Indians. Throughout the course of the 2017 season, Hanigan is 9-for-37 from the plate with one home run and six RBI in his 12 appearances for Colorado.

Hanigan is dealing with an ankle injury, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran hasn't appeared in any of the past five games, even with Sunday's day game normally being a game where he'd take over behind the plate to give regular catcher Tony Wolters a breather. The severity of the ailment is unclear, although the Rockies will likely play things safe with Wolters playing well and prospect catcher Tom Murphy (forearm) nearing a return. Consider Hanigan day-to-day for now.

Hanigan is 8-for-29 (.276) with one home run and six RBI in eight games for the Rockies this season.

EDGE Analysis

After injuries to both Tony Wolters and Tom Murphy (forearm) forced him into MLB action, Hanigan came out of the gate hot to make his case to remain on the big-league roster. It ultimately worked, and although he's slowed down at the plate a bit, he still has a firm foothold on the backup catching duties. Murphy is still a few weeks away from rejoining the Rockies, so it seems like Hanigan will be in Denver for the foreseeable future, albeit in a reserve role.

Hanigan had his contract purchased from Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With Tony Wolters headed to the DL with a concussion, Hanigan was added to the 25-man roster to serve as the Rockies' second catcher. Hanigan has held his own at Triple-A so far this season, slashing .282/.360/.359 across 39 at-bats (13 games). He'll primarily serve as backup to Dustin Garneau for the time being, though he'll likely be headed back to Triple-A once Wolters is ready to be activated.

Hanigan seems like a logical option to fill in for the injured Tony Wolters (concussion), Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dustin Garneau is currently the only healthy catcher on the Rockies' 40-man roster, although Colorado does have a spot on the 40-man to add Hanigan after they designated Christhian Adames for assignment Sunday. Hanigan has been playing well during his time in the minors this season, batting .282 with three doubles in 39 at-bats, so he could be a serviceable option if he does ultimately get called up.

Hanigan agreed to a minor league deal with the Rockies on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan was released by the Phillies on Monday after the team decided to deploy prospect Andrew Knapp as their backup catcher. The 36-year-old will likely open the season with Triple-A Albuquerque and serve as organizational depth for the Rockies.

Hanigan was released by the Phillies on Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan's dismissal means that the Phillies will go with prospect Andrew Knapp as their main backup at catcher behind Cameron Rupp. The 36-year-old veteran has been renowned throughout his career for his receiving skills, so it's possible another team could have interest bringing him aboard as a No. 2 catcher.

The Phillies may have been showcasing Hanigan to the Tigers for a potential trade, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanigan made starts at catcher on both Sunday and Tuesday in games against the Tigers, who are looking for catching depth. Hanigan is competing for the Phillies' backup catching job with Andrew Knapp, Logan Moore and Bryan Holaday. Early indications point to Knapp being the front-runner for the job, but there have also been reports that the Phillies could carry three catchers early in the season.
