• New Rays catcher Ryan Hanigan's dog, Copperridge What's Your Dream, won a Best of Breed ribbon at the Westminster Kennel Club show Monday in New York. The Australian Shepherd finished ahead of 43 other dogs.
Hanigan texted The Associated Press: "It's incredible that she went from my No. 1 bed buddy to best of breed at Westminster!!!"
The Rays acquired Hanigan from the Reds in a December deal. The catcher is expected to start the lion's share of games for the team this season.
