Rockies fans will have to wait to get their 1st look at Ryan Hanigan

During his career, catcher Ryan Hanigan has worn many uniforms. During his decade in the MLB, he has been a CIncinnati Red, a Tampa Bay Ray and a member of the Boston Red Sox. On Thursday, he will be strapping on his gear and catcher’s mitt for the fist time as a member of the Colorado Rockies.

Signed to a minor-league deal this spring, the 36-year-old Hanigan’s contract was selected by the Rockies on Wednesday. It is a move that was necessitated by the injury to Tom Murphy. Who was put on the seven-day concussion DL after being hit in the head with a bat during a swing on Tuesday.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:40 p.m. MT. If you want to see Hanigan in action however, you’re out of luck Rockies fans. Thursday’s game against the San Diego Padres will not be show on local television.
