Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick was lifted from Monday's Angels-Reds game after apparently injuring his right shoulder while sliding into third base. Here's a quick look at the play in question ...

As you can see, he lands awkwardly on his right shoulder and immediately comes up favoring it. Here's what our own Matt Snyder tweeted upon further review:

That doesn't sound good. The good news is, should this turn out to be something serious, the Reds have pretty good outfield depth. Of course, Ludwick, who's coming off an impressive 2012 season, would be sorely missed. More to come.

Update: Ludwick has a dislocated right shoulder, the team announced. He will have an MRI on Tuesday to determine the full extent of the damage. Chris Heisey figures to step into left field in Ludwick's stead.
