Gennett (groin) is moving around well, but he hasn't yet been cleared for baseball activities, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. As much as Gennett is eager to get back, the Reds are taking great efforts to make sure he doesn't aggravate the injury. "No groundballs or anything like that yet," manager David Bell said of Gennett's limits. "Some of the other things he's doing and his rehabilitation process makes him think he can do that, which is great. That's probably right around the corner."
Gennett (groin) said Monday that he doesn't expect to be reinstated from the 60-day injured list when first eligible May 27, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I'm getting better each day and able to do more stuff in the training room," Gennett said. "I would say, in probably a week or two weeks, I will be out in the field doing stuff like [fielding] groundballs, maybe swing the bat. But as of right now, it will definitely be after that date I'm eligible to come off [the IL]." Gennett was projected to miss 8-to-12 weeks when he was diagnosed with a strained right groin back on March 23, so his comments suggest he's likely trending somewhere toward the middle or back end of that recovery timeline. At this stage of his rehab, Gennett no longer requires the assistance of crutches and is gradually increasing his mobility work on a treadmill, but he's still awaiting clearance to run on the field and bases. Derek Dietrich and Jose Iglesias should continue to split work in the middle infield for at least the next month while Gennett remains on the mend.
Gennett (groin) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday. The transaction makes room on the 40-man roster for Nick Senzel, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move. Gennett's timeline won't be affected by the move, as he was initially expected to miss two or three months when he was diagnosed with a strained groin in late March, and he's still able to return in late May if he is indeed ready to go.
Gennett (groin) is off crutches and is walking around in the Reds clubhouse now, but hasn't yet started baseball activities, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. There's no timetable yet for Gennett's return, but initial estimates suggested that he would be out two to three months. When he returns, it might entail Jose Peraza going to the bench more often.
Gennett (groin) was placed on the 10-day IL. Gennett is expected to be sidelined for at least 8-to-12 weeks, which makes stashing him a tall order, especially in shallower leagues. Derek Dietrich and Jose Iglesias are expected to get his at-bats over the first few months.
