Cincinnati Reds RP Jonathan Broxton (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, Aug. 7, and C Ryan Hanigan (wrist) and OF Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) aren't far behind him. Broxton didn't allow a run in two rehab innings with Triple-A Louisville, giving up five hits, no walks and striking out five. Hanigan took batting practice two weeks ago, and his wrist only hurts him when swinging. Hanigan should come off the DL Wednesday or Friday, Aug. 9. Ludwick has played in eight rehab games, but is only 2-for-28 at the plate.
Fantasy Tip: Devin Mesoraco is likely to continue to see the majority of starts behind the dish, especially if Hanigan's wrist still bothers him when swinging. Ludwick should return to his role as the everyday left fielder. He'll be useful in deep mixed leagues with five outfield spots.
