ST. PETERSBURG -- Ryan Hanigan, who is on the disabled list with a left oblique strain, will be shut down from all activity for seven days, according to Rays manager Joe Maddon.

Hanigan was the designated hitter for Class A Charlotte on Saturday and went 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored. He was back in the clubhouse for a day off on Sunday and was tentatively scheduled to catch for Charlotte on Monday before the change of plans.

"We don't want to rush it," said Maddon, noting that Hanigan was feeling something in the oblique.

Hanigan went on the disabled list on July 17. Earlier in the season, he had another stint on the DL while recovering from a tight right hamstring.

Hanigan came to the Rays in a three-way deal with the Reds and D-backs on Dec. 3. He is hitting .212 with four home runs and 27 RBIs in 61 games for the Rays this season.
