TORONTO -- Ryan Hanigan returns to the Red Sox lineup for the first time since fracturing his right little finger May 1. The catcher will serve as the battery-mate for Sox starter Wade Miley in their team's series finale against the Blue Jays Thursday night. To make room for Hanigan on the 25-man roster, the Red Sox sent down reliever Jonathan Aro to Triple-A Pawtucket having thrown 44 pitches in his three-inning stint Wednesday. It leaves the Sox with three catchers, with both Blake Swihart and Sandy Leon remaining with the club. Hanley Ramirez makes his second straight start in left field after sitting out with a left hand injury, teaming with Mookie Betts and Alejandro De Aza in the Red Sox' outfield.
