Hanigan Has Surgery, Out Until All-Star Break

Hanigan Has Surgery, Out Until All-Star Break

Andover High School's Ryan Hanigan will have to wait awhile to play again for his hometown team. The 34-year old catcher had surgery today to insert pins into the knuckle of his right pinky finger—fractured on Friday night. The prognosis is that he will be out until at least through the All-Star Break. Said Manager John Farrell, "We don’t anticipate losing Ryan Hanigan for the entire year." So, Blake Swihart will get the biggest chance of his career—unless Boston goes out and trades for another backstop. By the way, A.J. Pierzynski is hitting .408.
