UPDATE: Physical to come
Reports are surfacing that Andover's Ryan Hanigan will be traded by the Padres to the Red Sox in exchange for Will Middlebrooks. Hanigan graduated from Andover (MA) High School back in 1999. He was a three-year varsity starter at Andover and was an Eastern Massachusetts All-Star in his senior year. Hanigan would be a perfect compliment to Christian Vazquez in the Boston backstop brigade. Middlebrooks—still with potent power potential—would help fill a void at the hot corner for San Diego. Hanigan was just traded from the Rays two days ago in the big 11-player Wil Myers deal. Stay tuned.
