After sitting out four consecutive games with flu-like symptoms, Hanigan is in the lineup while Sandy Leon gets the night off. Hanigan has struggled at the plate this season and is posting a poor line of .176/.231/.247.
Bandy will get a regular day off after starting the past two games behind the plate. For Friday's contest, Carlos Perez will be the catcher for Tim Lincecum.
Perez was scratched from the lineup Wednesday as he went down with the flu, but will be back behind the plate for Friday's contest. He will be catching Edinson Volquez and batting sixth.
Zunino was behind the plate for five of the Mariners' last six games, but he went just 3-for-15 (.200) at the plate over that span, so he will give way to Chris Iannetta on Friday.
Hanigan has missed the last three games due to flu-like symptoms.
Perez was taken out of the lineup with an illness as Drew Butera takes over behind the plate. Butera will now bat eighth in the order, with Paulo Orlando sliding up to the fifth spot.
Suzuki will get a day off after two straight games behind the plate. He recently received eight stitches for a lacerated chin after Saturday's contest, so the 32-year-old will get some added rest. Juan Centeno is manning the catching duties for Thursday's game.
Wieters will get a regular day off after starting the past three games behind the plate. In his place, Caleb Joseph will man the catcher's duties for Ubaldo Jimenez, while batting ninth in the order. Since returning from a foot injury that caused Wieters to miss six games, he has gone 2-for-12 with a double.
Hanigan was a late scratch from Tuesday's game and sat out another Wednesday, though manager John Farrell said he was available "in an emergency." This means Sandy Leon will be the starting the backstop until Hanigan is ready for a full nine innings.
The veteran backstop hadn't homered since before the All-Star break -- July 8 -- and after collecting six hits in his final two games before the break, he still only has five hits in 10 games since. For a while there in April, it looked like we might get a bit more batting average out of McCann, but it now looks like he's destined to hit around .230 for the fourth time in five years.
