Reds | Ryan Hanigan might return Monday

Cincinnati Reds C Ryan Hanigan (ankle) missed his fifth straight day of action Sunday, June 30, due to a sore left ankle. There is a chance Hanigan might return Monday, July 1, against the San Francisco Giants. "He had a little hop in his step yesterday," manager Dusty Baker said. "Before, he had a little hitch in his step. It looks like he is walking normal. It doesn't mean he's 100 percent. We've just got to make it through the break. I've just got to watch him. There's a difference between being hurt and being injured."

Fantasy Tip: If you normally depend upon Hanigan as a No. 2 catcher in fantasy leagues, it still might be a good idea to go another way. Devin Mesoraco has filled in admirably during Hanigan's absence, and it sounds like the skipper might try to limit Hanigan to get him to the All-Star break where he can rest.
