Rodriguez (hamstring) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.
Rodriguez doesn't appear to be too close to a return, as his recent rehab stint was cut short due to "aches or pains" in his leg. In the meantime, the Reds will move the outfielder off the 40-man roster in order to free up space for an extra reliever.
Rodriguez (hamstring) has had to stop playing games in extended spring training. "His legs got tired and heavy, and he had some aches or pains and whatever," manager Bryan Price said. "He wasn't able to carry the workload we had assigned him. From the last injury report, he's feeling much better as of yesterday. He should be re-invested in playing in some games soon."
The Reds still have to decide what to do with Rodriguez once he returns from the DL, being out of options. This setback at least buys them some time.
Yorman Rodriguez (hamstring) has resumed taking batting practice and could begin a rehab assignment this week, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Rodriguez could have an extended rehab assignment, given both the time off and the fact that he's out of options, thus giving the Cincinnati Reds more time to delay their decision.
Yorman Rodriguez (hamstring) is still having some tenderness in his hamstring and is not close to coming off the disabled list, Zach Buchanan of Cincinnati.com reports.
Rodriguez injured his hamstring right at the end of spring training and still hasn't been able to get back to rehabbing his hamstring. Manager Bryan Price said that he doesn't see the outfielder beginning a rehab appearance until he's able to move around without any issues. When he does return, however, there's a good chance that he'll stick on the big club since he's out of options.
The move is retroactive to March 27. It helps buy some time for the Reds, as Rodriguez is out of options. This allows them to send him on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville and get more at-bats there. Eventually, they'll have to decide whether to fish or cut bait with him this season.
