Semien (hand) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Thursday.
This doesn't come as too much of a surprise, as the 26-year-old just had six screws inserted into his scaphoid bone to help repair a fracture. Semien will be reevaluated in six weeks, at which point there may be a clearer timetable for his return. He is eligible to come of the DL in mid-June, though it remains uncertain whether he'll be activated then. In the meantime, Adam Rosales and Chad Pinder will continue to fill in at shortstop in his stead.
Semien (wrist) underwent successful surgery Tuesday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Semien's surgery involved getting six screws inserted into his scaphoid bone to repair his fracture. As was previously reported, the 26-year-old will be reevaluated in six weeks. Until then, Adam Rosales and Chad Pinder will handle the shortstop duties.
Semien will have surgery on his right wrist after a CT scan revealed a fracture of the scaphoid bone, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Although the shortstop was initially diagnosed with a bone contusion, further tests revealed troubling news for Semien and the A's, as the 26-year-old's ailing wrist will require surgery to heal. There is currently no timetable for his recovery, though he won't even be reevaluated for another six weeks after the procedure, so it could be awhile until he is back with the A's. Adam Rosales has been filling in at shortstop during his absence and could see the majority of reps, though Chad Pinder was also called up as middle infield depth and could get a look as well.
Semien (wrist) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday.
Semien underwent an MRI on his ailing right wrist Saturday, and although he was diagnosed with merely a contusion, the Athletics ordered a CT scan Monday to take a further investigate the issue. While it's possible those scans won't reveal any new information, the Athletics will err on the side of caution and shelve Semien for at least the next week and a half in order to avoid an aggravation. Chad Pinder was recalled from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move and is expected to share duties at shortstop with Adam Rosales for the duration of Semien's absence.
Semien (wrist) was diagnosed with a bone contusion in his right wrist and will receive a CT scan Monday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Semien was held out of Saturday's lineup after the ailing wrist was reportedly inhibiting him during Friday's contest, but it seems like a bigger problem has been avoided at this time. The CT scan may reveal more, but for the time being Semien should be considered day-to-day. Adam Rosales could pick up some extra playing time in his stead.
