Reds | Ryan Hanigan fine but slumping

Cincinnati Reds C Ryan Hanigan (hand) was hit with a foul ball on his right hand while behind the plate, but manager Dusty Baker said his starting backstop is OK. He's resting Hanigan Wednesday, April 10, because he's off to a 1-for-23 start on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Devin Mesoraco is at least getting an opportunity to play on back-to-back days. It's too quick to say Baker is moving away from the reliable but unexciting (for fantasy purposes) Hanigan, but if Mesoraco acquits himself well at the dish, it's a solid opportunity to earn more at-bats for the balance of the early part of the season. Two-catcher mixed leaguers should take note.
