Reds | Ryan Hanigan throwing out runners

Cincinnati Reds C Ryan Hanigan has thrown out nine runners trying to steal and has allowed seven stolen bags this season, giving him the second best mark in the majors in that category. Last year, base stealers were successful 52 percent of the time. "It's something I've done pretty well," Hanigan said. "I get excited if guys try to steal. I have a lot of confidence in that part of my game."

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan is clearly a more defensive-minded catcher. His offensive skills are lacking, but as long as he's getting the majority of starts behind the dish, he's not a bad option in two-catcher and NL-only leagues.
