Padres to trade C Ryan Hanigan for 3B Will Middlebrooks

Padres GM A.J. Preller has set such a furious trading pace that it's almost impossible to keep up with him.  I should really recap what he's done in the last 2 days but it's just too much.  Basically he's acquired every outfielder and catcher on the trading blocks.  Preller and company are now looking to fill some holes in the left side of his infield.  He's doing that by slapping a new coat of paint and flipping newly acquired C Ryan Hanigan to the Boston Red Sox for 3B Will Middlebrooks. Middlebrooks was once a prized prospect of the Red Sox organization but he has fallen out of favor...

Andover's Hanigan To Sox For Middlebrooks?

Andover's Hanigan To Sox For Middlebrooks?

Reports are surfacing that Andover's Ryan Hanigan will be traded by the Padres to the Red Sox for Will Middlebrooks. Hanigan graduated from Andover (MA) High School back in 1999. He was a three-year varsity starter at Andover and was an Eastern Massachusetts All-Star in his senior year. Hanigan would be a perfect compliment to Christian Vazquez in the Boston backstop brigade. Middlebrooks—still with potent power potential—would help fill a void at the hot corner for San Diego. Hanigan was just traded from the Rays two days ago in the big 11-player Wil Myers deal. Stay tuned.

Red Sox, Padres talking Will Middlebrooks, Ryan Hanigan trade

Hanigan is a defense-first catcher, and Middlebrooks needs a change of scenery. The Padres are making every possible move to upgrade their roster, and as Yangervis Solarte is a utility player pretending to be a third baseman right now, San Diego is looking to improve at the hot corner. They might not get a definite jump in production by dealing for Will Middlebrooks, but they're trying it anyway, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan. In return, the Red Sox would get that second catcher they're looking for in Ryan Hanigan, who was traded to the Padres on Wednesday in the Wil Myers...

Comparing Ryan Hanigan and Rene Rivera, the catchers in the Wil Myers trade

Who is Rivera and why did we trade for him? The Rays have reportedly completed a blockbuster trade, sending former Rookie of the Year Wil Myers to San Diego, along with a ton of other moving parts. I'd like to focus on one small slice of the deal -- the Rays just swapped their starting catcher, Ryan Hanigan, for fellow catcher Rene Rivera. Your first thought, upon hearing the possibility of the Rivera-Hanigan do-si-do, was likely, "Who?" Danny profiled Rivera as a Rays target earlier this winter, but if you looked him up you found that Rivera is a 31 year old journeyman with 673...
