Red Sox catcher Ryan Hanigan serving as a mentor to Swihart, Leon
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Red Sox catcher Ryan Hanigan has been sidelined since early May with a fractured knuckle and has been serving as an informal catching coach for rookie Blake Swihart and journeyman Sandy Leon, per the Boston Herald.
"There have been conversations with Sandy and Blake prior to a series (especially) if it's a team we've played already this year," Farrell said of Hanigan's mentoring. "He gives his insights and feedback from what he experienced from behind the plate.
"There are conversations between some innings in the dugout with what he is seeing. It is just an open dialogue and both guys have a tremendous amount of trust and respect for him and he adds what he can."
Hanigan was awarded the catching job at the start of the season when Christian Vazquez was lost for the season due to Tommy John surgery. He remains hopeful he'll compete for his old starting job once he's back from the disabled list at some point before the All-Star break.
"I had a good evaluation and it's really going along," Hanigan said. "The doctor's happy and I can start moving around and run and do things to keep my body in shape."

|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/2/15) Red Sox catcher Ryan Hanigan underwent surgery Saturday to repair a broken finger and isn't expected back until late July, according to WEEI.com.|
Hanigan, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list, fractured the finger during Friday's loss to the Yankees.
“He had surgery today,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “There were some pins inserted. It’s going to be a lengthy recovery time. I wouldn’t anticipate him back before the All-Star break.”
Red Sox purchase contract of Blake Swihart; Ryan Hanigan to the DL
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) The Red Sox officially purchased the contract of catching prospect Blake Swihart from Triple-A Pawtucket prior to Saturday's game against the Yankees at Fenway Park.
Swihart, 23, will take over for Ryan Hanigan, who suffered a broken finger on Friday against New York. Hanigan was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Swihart, ranked No. 2 on Boston's Top 30 prospects list by MLB.com, will make his big-league debut and hit ninth in the order for Boston on Saturday. He batted .338/.392/.382 with three doubles and 11 RBI over 18 games at Triple-A.
"I feel ready. I don't think I'd be here if I didn't feel ready," Swihart said, per the Boston Herald.
Swihart added that he put plenty of work into his defense while in the minors, per MLB.com.
"I think I've improved a lot," Swihart said. "Whether that's learning new pitches or learning what they like to throw, when they like to throw it. Just pitch calling, and everything. That's my biggest thing I wanted to improve on."
Boston is a slight favorite (-115) at home against the Yankees, per VegasInsider.com.
Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan could undergo surgery Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/2/15) Red Sox catcher Ryan Hanigan could undergo surgery to repair his fractured hand as early as Saturday. The team is awaiting second opinions before deciding on surgery, according to the Boston Globe.
"First, we don't anticipate losing Ryan Hanigan for the entire year," manager John Farrell said, per the Boston Herald. "Before we start to answer questions on the future, we're focused on today. Blake is aware of that. We feel like there's a pretty good structure around him right now for the needs that he might have behind the plate, and we'll go from here."
Hanigan suffered the injury during Friday's loss to the Yankees and remains without a timetable for return, but he is expected to play again this season.
