CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds placed catcher Ryan
on the disabled list with a fractured left thumb and
reinstated infielder Paul Janish from the bereavement list
The Reds also purchased the contract of catcher Corky Miller
from Triple-A Louisville and optioned infielder Drew Sutton to the
Bats. To make room on the 40-man roster for Miller, Chris Dickerson
was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day list.
Hanigan sustained the injury on the tip of his thumb while
sliding into second base trying to break up a double play in the
fourth inning of Friday's 15-6 win over Houston. Hanigan, who is
hitting .351 and already has set a single-season career high with
17 RBIs, stayed in the game and even doubled in the eighth inning.
Miller hit .287 with four homers and 24 RBIs in 30 games with
the Bats this season.
Janish was placed on the bereavement list Wednesday so he could
attend the funeral of his grandmother in Houston. Sutton, recalled
to replace Janish, played two games and hit a pinch-hit grand-slam
Dickerson has been sidelined since April 30 after undergoing
surgery to clean out his right wrist and remove the fractured hook
from the hamate bone of his right hand.
