CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds activated catcher Ryan Hanigan off the disabled list for the start of a series on Friday night against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Hanigan went on the 15-day DL on April 21 with a strained left oblique. He played three games on a medical rehabilitation assignment this week, going 3 for 8 with Triple-A Louisville. Hanigan batted .079 in 12 games before the injury, going 3 for 38 with no homers and two RBIs.
The Reds designated catcher Corky Miller for assignment to open a spot. Miller batted .125 in six games with no homers or RBIs.
The Reds still have five players on the disabled list, including left fielders Ryan Ludwick and Chris Heisey and top starter Johnny Cueto. Cueto made his first rehab start on Thursday night.
