Reds | Ryan Hanigan not getting better

Cincinnati Reds C Ryan Hanigan (thumb) was out of the lineup Saturday, April 20, against the Miami Marlins. He was hit on the right thumb week by a foul tip, and even though X-rays did not show a break, he was unable to go Saturday. "I'm having problems with my thumb, it's getting worse, not better," Hanigan said. "It's some sort of sprain in the ligament or capsule or something. It's lingering constantly, so I'm trying to calm it down.

Fantasy Tip: With Hanigan sidelined, Devin Mesoraco made the start behind the dish. He is worth adding in all NL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed formats which require two starting catchers if Hanigan is forced to the 15-day disabled list.
