Aquino is expected to be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks with an ankle injury, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Aquino landed on the 10-day injured list Monday with what was labeled a strained left calf, but the injury has since been clarified as an ankle issue. The 28-year-old had an .810 OPS through nine games in June but may now be unavailable until after the All-Star break.
Aquino (calf) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Aquino was scratched from the starting lineup earlier in the day after the team revealed he suffered a left calf strain during Sunday's matchup, and he's since been placed on the 10-day IL. Jonathan India (hamstring) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move. TJ Friedl figures to be a candidate for more at-bats while Aquino is on the mend.
Aquino is no longer listed in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Arizona due to a calf strain, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Aquino was removed from Sunday's series finale with the Cardinals due to an undisclosed injury, and he has since been diagnosed with a calf strain. He'll be considered day-to-day until the severity of the injury becomes more clear.
Aquino isn't starting Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Aquino started in the last three games and went 3-for-9 with a double, two runs, a walk and four strikeouts. Albert Almora will serve as the designated hitter while TJ Friedl starts in right field.
Aquino will start in right field and bat eighth in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks. With Mike Moustakas (illness) heading to the COVID-19-related injured list Monday, Aquino looks like he'll be the primary beneficiary of increased playing time. He'll stick in the lineup for the third straight game after going 2-for-5 at the dish between his previous two starts.
