Rockies catcher Ryan Hanigan revisits pitch framing

Colorado Rockies bench Carlos Gonzalez, win baseball game

Colorado Rockies news and notes for Thursday, June 15, 2017 Rockies sit slumping CarGo; catcher Murphy nearing call-up | Denver Post It hasn't been great for Carlos Gonzalez recently.

This poses a bit of an issue, since Ryan Hanigan, who is...
