Naquin (hip) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. Naquin was expected to be out 6-to-10 weeks after undergoing surgery back on Aug. 3. This move means he'll fall in the back half of that range, though he still has a chance to return for the final week of the season.
Naquin had surgery to stabilize a stress reaction in his right hip Thursday. He is expected to be sidelined for 6-to-10 weeks. Dr. James Rosneck inserted three screws in Naquin's femur after the outfielder suffered the stress reaction a week ago. If Naquin is able to return to baseball activities on the short side of that timetable, there's a decent chance he will be able to return to action sometime around the latter stages of September, but expect the Indians to play it cautious with a playoff spot seemingly in their grasp and other viable options in the outfield.
Indians manager Terry Francona revealed Sunday that Naquin is dealing with a stress reaction in his right hip, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Naquin was placed on the 10-day disabled Saturday with hip discomfort, but a follow-up MRI clarified the extent of the setback. The outfielder sustained a similar injury near the end of the 2015 season, so the Indians could be motivated to tread cautiously with Naquin in his rehab. Naquin is scheduled to receive a second opinion in New York in the coming days, at which point a timetable for his return may be established.
Naquin (hip) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list prior to Saturday's matchup with the Tigers, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports. Naquin left the team's road trip for Cleveland, where he'll have his right hip further evaluated. The extent of the injury is unknown, but a stint on the disabled list appears imminent. More news on Naquin's injury should surface in the near future.
Naquin was scratched from Friday's starting lineup due to right hip discomfort, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. In his place, Rajai Davis will man center field and bat ninth. Naquin should be considered day-to-day heading into Saturday's affair.
