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.
Gennett was diagnosed Saturday with a strained right groin and is expected to miss 8-to-12 weeks. The news is a devastating blow to the Reds with Opening Day less than a week away, as the team will now be without a key middle-of-the-order bat until at least late May. Gennett's injury likely paves the way for non-roster invitees Derek Dietrich and Jose Iglesias to both break camp with the big club, with the latter slated to draw regular starts alongside shortstop Jose Peraza in the middle infield, per Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer. Though top prospect Nick Senzel looms at Triple-A Louisville and logged 28 starts at second base for the affiliate in 2018, president of baseball operations Dick Williams said the youngster won't be a candidate to replace Gennett and will instead continue his transition to the outfield, according to C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic.
Gennett (groin) is out of the lineup for Saturday's Cactus League game against the Indians, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Gennett tweaked his right groin Friday against the Brewers, resulting in his removal from the contest. The Reds sent the second baseman in for an MRI afterward, but an update on the severity of his injury hasn't yet been revealed. In the event that Gennett is unavailable for the March 28 season opener versus the Pirates, the Reds could turn to Derek Dietrich or Jose Iglesias -- both attending camp as non-roster invitees -- to start in the middle infield.
