BP Annual Player Comments

2017 How differently would we look back on Hanigan’s career if he could just stay healthy? The perennial backup missed a ton of time once again in 2016, dealing with neck and ankle injuries en route to playing in his fewest games since 2008. He’s averaged just 71 games per season over his career, and while that’s partially a function of his role, it’s also due to a medical record that makes Infinite Jest seem succinct. Our catching metrics suggest that Hanigan was a below-average defender for the first time in his career, which could be a sample size issue were it not for the litany of 36-year-old backstops who follow a rational aging curve. Odds are Hanigan will latch on again as a backup somewhere, but whatever team takes the plunge will need a backup for him, too.
2016 It's truly amazing that everyone keeps walking Hanigan, because he can't really do anything with balls thrown over the plate; the veteran backstop has just 34 extra-base hits over the past three seasons. Yet he still somehow managed a 10 percent walk rate last year, proof that it can just be hard to throw three strikes in baseball. Hanigan is still a relevant roster piece thanks to his defense, respect as a game-caller and OBP that's tolerable for a no. 9 hitter. That being said, it may be best if Blake Swihart and/or Christian Vazquez conspire to make him obsolete before opposing pitchers finish the job.
2015 In search of a catcher to take some of the pressure off Jose Molina, the Rays traded for Hanigan—taking on the salary of Heath Bell in the process—and gave him a three-year extension before he put on his chest protector. For the most part, the backstop performed as advertised. He was close to the league average with the bat and handled the pitching staff expertly. He remains an excellent receiver and blocker. His caught-stealing rate dropped but the Rays' staff is not known for its ability to hold runners. Many predicted a drop in walks as he moved from batting eighth in the National League to the bottom of an American League lineup, but as it turns out, Hanigan just has a good feel for balls and strikes and walked at a rate in line with his career norms. The biggest disappointment from his season in Tampa Bay was the 60-plus days spent on the disabled list with hamstring and oblique injuries. He'll be veteran leadership to a young Boston catching corps this year.
2014 Only two players in the majors posted a slugging percentage lower than Hanigans .267 in more than 200 plate appearances: Ruben Tejada and Jamey Carroll. Hanigan's mark was depressed by a .222 BABIP, despite no significant change to his batted ball profile; once a BABIP gets this low, it becomes hard to distinguish between bad luck and bad hitting, each of which probably played some part. Cincinnati assumed it was the latter and shipped him to the Rays, who promptly gave him an inexpensive multi-year extension. Hanigan may lack punch but remains a fine defensive backstop who controls the running game, frames pitches, draws walks and makes contacthes the only player in the majors to have more walks than strikeouts in each of the past six seasons. If his new employers focus on what Hanigan can do, rather than what he cant, theyll be happy with their investment.
2013 Hanigan is patient at the plate, especially against left-handers, against whom he has more than twice as many walks as strikeouts in his career. His power is in the Paul Bako/Gary Bennett range, which is to say nonexistent. Hanigan is a good defender with a strong armhe caught 48 percent of potential basestealers last year, leading NL catchers, and is at 40 percent for his career. Pressed into starting duty because Devin Mesoraco wasn't ready, Hanigan is best suited to a backup role, where he is an asset.
2012 There's a natural temptation to want to multiply a guy's production into full-time play, especially when it's a hitter who can help you as much as Hanigan does with his OBP, not to mention a career 36 percent rate of gunning down stolen-base attempts. But historically, Hanigan has run out steam in the second half (losing almost 100 points in OPS in the majors), and he's never caught 100 games. That isn't to say he can't, but you can understand why he might be better off just wearing the uneasy crown of "Baseball's Best Backup Catcher" and being done with it.
2011 Its hard to blame the Reds for restricting Hanigan's appearances, given that veteran co-catcher Ramon Hernandez was no slouch on either side of the ball, but he deserves to be starting somewhere. A fractured left thumb kept Hanigan out of action at least as much as Dusty Baker did, but when healthy and in the lineup, his value rivaled that of any backstop in the league. Catcher defense is notoriously difficult to assess, but the body of evidence suggests that Hanigan has few equals when it comes to receiving pitches or limiting the running game, and increasing selectivity coupled with crack contact skills have made him an asset at the plate. Catchers get old faster than pop-culture references, and Hanigan will hit 30 in August, so the Reds should leverage their competitive advantage behind the plate before its too late. Unfortunately, their decision to re-sign the older, more expensive Hernandez will likely make Hanigan more benched than Bench in 2011, and the Reds system is rich in catching talent.
2010 Hanigans not a particularly exciting player, but he deserves better than hes gotten from the Reds. Last year, he clearly out-produced Ramon Hernandez, a catcher four years his senior, but the Reds opted to bring back Hernandez for his veteran experience despite the fact that he will cost them nearly four times as much as Hanigan for the 2010 season. Hernandez has more power than Hanigan, but thats not saying much. Hanigan, on the other hand, is considerably better at getting on base and, in his brief major-league career, has walked more than hes struck out and thrown out an impressive 40 percent of opposing basestealers. Hanigan would be a backup on a good team, but he shouldnt have to lose playing time to the rapidly aging Hernandez.
2009 Hanigan bravely fought his way through the Reds' horde of backstops to become the team's primary catcher at the end of the season, only to see his shot at a starting job fade with the trade that brought Ramon Hernandez come over from the Orioles. While the idea of Hanigan as a starter might always have been a stretchit's tough for an old rookie catcher with his skill set to get much of a shake, let alone a fair onehe did acquit himself well when given the opportunity, showing some good defense and a league-average bat.
2008 Hanigan has a good batting eye and fine defensive skills (he was near the top of his leagues in throwing out runners), but at 27 he's fated to be a backup. Unfortunately for him, the Reds have Dave Ross and Javier Valentin under contract for 2008, so advancement will require a trade or an injury.
2006 Hanigan improved offensively in his first action in Double-A last year, making himself into a marginal prospect. That`s faint praise considering that the Reds` stockpile of catching prospects is something like the nuclear arsenal of Belarus--impressive on paper but functionally unusable.

2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 10 team AL only league where we start 2 (two, TWO!) catchers! Totally unrelated, but who's your favorite under the radar backup catcher in the AL?
(k3o3r9n0 from Santa Clara)
I'm in one of these as well and I have been playing Ryan Hanigan in my second spot. It's not ideal but he should walk enough that he won't do too much damage otherwise. He has an RBI tonight! Jaso is a really good option but he's in more of a timeshare than he is a backup. Geovany Soto is hurt right now and might be available because of that. He's a nice option (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Catchers are catchers, but any lying in the weeds kind of pick as a late round steal you'd suggest?
(Steve from AZ)
Yes, hard to see a big steal at the position given what it's like. You could try for Mike Zunino in a shallower, non-keeper league and hope people forgot about him. Ryan Hanigan might be a guy people overlook in deeper leagues who might hurt the BA but provides some sneaky power. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your favorite ball player that you will never own on a fantasy team? I personally love Brendan Ryan because of his humor and how under appreciated he is.
(Jon from Arlington)
Ryan Hanigan might actually be my favorite active player after Bourjos, and I'd never own him on a fantasy team, so (Sam Miller)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Devin Mesoraco still have a future as every-day C for the Reds? If so, when might that future be?
(sitdancer from DC)
Hi sitdancer, thanks for the question. Someone is blasting Men at Work's "Who Can It Be Now?" so forgive me if I'm distracted. I think Mesoraco can be an everyday catcher, but as numerous youngsters before him have shown, that is a very difficult position to master at the big-league level. The presence of Ryan Hanigan complicates matters. He is almost the ideal backup catcher, but at the same time, he's too good to be a backup. (Geoff Young)
2012-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the Reds taking so long to figure out that Ryan Hanigan is a starting C at the MLB level, do they deal Hanigan this offseason and improve their rotation?
(jlarsen from chicago)
It takes two to tango, as it were. You have to find a team willing to part with a pitcher you like in exchange for Hanigan. Also, again, depth is important. Most MLB GMs would rather hang onto a player they don't "need" for depth purposes than make a trade where they're not happy about the return. The Reds won't deal Hanigan just to make some kind of move or to satisfy some sort of #freeryanhanigan movement, they'll make a deal if and only if they feel like it leaves them with a better ballclub than when they started. (Colin Wyers)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Devin Mesoraco, I haven't decide who is calling the game yet. I actually think Ryan Hanigan deserves the time split, am I wrong?
(Dusty Baker from Cinncy)
We probably don't know enough about what his pitchers are telling him, and how much those things matter. Hanigan's not a zero and a split wouldn't be Dusty's worst move. (Sam Miller)
2011-11-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Is Walt Jocketty really going to spend another winter sitting on his hands, letting major league ready prospects pile up while his team is a top notch starter away from being truly competitive? Surely Castellini didn't have "pray it just miraculously happens" as the strategy for his "the losing stops now" approach.
(Rick from Chicago)
The Reds really do have to figure out which of the catchers of the future in their system is the catcher of their future and find a good home for the other one. Holding on to youngsters is often a good thing, but holding on to them too long can be a very bad thing. And no, that was not an attempt at making an edgy, twisted Penn State joke--I meant in the Bill Stoneman sense. Also, free Ryan Hanigan! (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have the following four catchers in a 16 team Strat-O-Matic league where you can keep a guy forever if you like. Which do you like long term: Chris Iannetta, Ryan Hanigan, Josh Thole, Jason Castro? I'd love to have a stronger catcher, but that's not a possibility until next year's draft.
(jhardman from Strat-O-Matic land)
Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to play a strat-o-matic league before, so I'm not sure how all the specifics work, like how catcher defense is factored in. Hitting wise in regular roto terms, I like Iannetta the best. (Derek Carty)
2011-06-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give your thoughts on why any of the MLB teams starving for a catcher haven't been able to give Cincinnati an offer good enough to free Ryan Hanigan?
(jhardman from Rangerland)
Maybe because the Reds are asking too much in trade? Or because they don't want to break up what's been a very productive unit? I don't think they're obligated to solve somebody else's problem without being amply rewarded. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-06-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Devin Mesoraco is destroying AAA (.330/.409/.558), but the Reds already have two starter-worthy catchers. Should they make a move mid-season to give him a shot or hang tight until after the season and let Hernandez walk?
(RMR from Chicago)
Free Ryan Hanigan! As far as I'm concerned, Hanigan should have not only his own starting job, but his own reality show about having a starting job. The Reds are stacked at catcher from the majors on down, and a number of other teams around the league might pay through the nose for some help behind the plate, so if they're confident that Mesoraco is psychologically ready for the majors and that his development wouldn't be hurt by a time-sharing arrangement, making a move might not be a bad way of maximizing the value of their assets.
