Reds C Ryan Hanigan, on the disabled list with a strained left side and bruised left thumb, is hitting and his hand feels strong, but Baker wants him to take his time to make sure he's 100 percent when he returns. ''Hanny's a big part of this club,'' Baker said.
Hopefully the injury isn't too prolonged. I wonder how much time Mez will get in his return. It's crazy how highly rated of a prospect he was and how little of a chance baker is giving him to become comfortable and productive in the majors.
