Hanigan's about to turn 28 years old, so I don't think "upside" really applies. Depending on his ability behind the plate, he *might* be a candidate for a backup job next year. But considering it was just this year that he became a decent hitter in Triple-A, I don't think you could put him behind the plate in Cincinnati and expect anything except replacement level, and maybe not even that. I don't think it would hurt anything to take a look but he's not someone to make plans around.
