Senzel (finger) will play left field in Cincinnati's instructional league, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Senzel underwent season-ending surgery at the end of June on his right index finger, but he's already resumed hitting and should be ready for the start of the instructional league. Although he was drafted as a third baseman, saw time at shortstop in spring training and played second base most of the year in the minors, the Reds are interested in testing out Senzel's versatility even further in an effort to get his bat to the majors as quickly as possible, with Reds President of Baseball Operations Dick Williams citing players like Kris Bryant as examples of Senzel's possible usage around the diamond.
