Rays put catcher Ryan Hanigan on DL, bring up Curt Casali for major league debut

  • Print

MINNEAPOLIS - The Tampa Bay Rays have placed catcher Ryan Hanigan on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle on his left side.

The move was made before Friday's game at Minnesota.

The Rays selected catcher Curt Casali from Triple-A Durham to fill in and back up Jose Molina. The 25-year-old Casali was in the lineup against the Twins on Friday, making his major league debut. He singled in his first at-bat.

Hanigan's DL stint is retroactive to July 9. The Rays hoped he would return after the All-Star break, but the oblique injury didn't make enough improvement.

To make room for Casali on the 40-man roster, outfielder Wil Myers was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Myers will be out another month because of a broken right wrist.
