  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Returns to lineup

    Senzel (back) is starting Thursday's game against the Yankees.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Scratched with back stiffness

    Senzel was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Yankees due to mid-back stiffness, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Senzel was penciled in to start in center field, but he was a late removal from the lineup due to the back issue. He missed a few games with a lower-back strain during the first half of June, but he returned without a trip to the injured list and didn't appear to have any further issues until Wednesday.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Sitting Sunday

    Senzel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    In addition to plating two runs in Saturday's 5-4 win, Senzel has also recorded a pair of hits in both of the first two games of the series with the Rays, lifting his season average to .262. Though Albert Almora will get a look in center field in Sunday's series finale, Senzel still looks like the Reds' preferred option at the position.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Idle for first game of twin bill

    Senzel is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Pirates.

    Senzel will get a breather for the front end of the twin bill, ending a stretch of 13 consecutive starts during which he slashed .442/.489/.605 with two home runs, three stolen bases, nine runs and eight RBI. Though Albert Almora will get the nod in center field for Game 1, Senzel's hot run at the plate of late likely solidifies him as the clear top option on the depth chart.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Launches third homer

    Senzel went 2-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Wednesday's 8-3 extra-inning loss to the Mets.

    The 27-year-old got the Reds on the board by taking David Peterson deep in the second inning. Senzel has only three homers on the year, but two of them have come in the last three games, and over the last 13 contests he's slashing a blistering .442/.489/.605.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Pops second homer

    Senzel went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Mets.

    The 27-year-old took Drew Smith deep in the seventh inning, providing the Reds with their last gasp of offense on the night and Senzel with only his second homer in 53 games. He's locked in right now though, batting .432 (16-for-37) over his last 11 games with three steals, six RBI and eight runs, and Cincinnati will continue to give him plenty of playing time as the 2016 first-round pick tries to put together his long-awaited breakout.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Perfect day at the plate

    Senzel went 3-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored and a walk in a 10-3 win over the Giants on Sunday.

    The No. 8 hitter enabled the Reds' offensive barrage from the bottom of the order by not making an out the entire game. The 26-year-old center fielder has now hit safely in four straight games and is hitting .236 on the season with one home run and 12 RBI.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Notches fifth steal

    Senzel went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and a stolen base in Saturday's 9-2 loss to the Giants.

    Senzel knocked in the opening run and stole a base in the second inning, but the Giants took over after that. After enduring a 2-for-18 skid, Senzel has gone 5-for-10 with a double, three RBI, three steals and two runs scored in his last three contests. The outfielder still has plenty to prove -- he's slashing .222/.275/.272 with one home run, 11 RBI, 19 runs scored, five steals and five doubles across 171 plate appearances this season, but he's finally trending in the right direction again.

Senzel fell off after starting this month with hits in seven straight games, and he now has four hits in his last seven. The outfielder is slashing .246/.313/.263 across 14 June games.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Sitting again Friday

    Senzel (back) is out of the lineup for Friday's game at St. Louis.

    Senzel is sitting out for the third straight game after being scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to a lower-back strain. However, manager David Bell said that the 26-year-old could be available off the bench, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. With Albert Almora (shoulder) also dealing with an injury, Tommy Pham, TJ Friedl and Aristides Aquino will start from left to right in the outfield Friday.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Remains out of lineup

    Senzel (back) is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    Senzel will miss a second consecutive game while dealing with a back injury as Albert Almora draws the start in center field and will bat eighth Thursday. Manager David Bell told Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer that Senzel had his back examined Thursday and he could miss a day or a few.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Late scratch with back injury

    Senzel was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks due to a lower-back strain, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Senzel was penciled in to bat leadoff Wednesday but was scratched while the start of the contest delayed due to rain. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it's a troublesome development given the 26-year-old's extensive injury history.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Getting job done as leadoff man

    Senzel went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs in Tuesday's 14-8 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Senzel has served as the Reds' leadoff man in each of the team's first seven games of June and has produced a .323/.364/.355 slash line to go with two stolen bases. While the power production is lacking from the former top prospect, Senzel likely won't be in danger of sliding down in the order until Jonathan India (hamstring) is cleared to return from the 10-day injured list.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Swipes first bag

    Senzel went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in a 5-4 loss Sunday against Washington.

    Senzel led off the bottom of the first with a single and later stole second and scored. The center fielder has gotten off to a great start in June, hitting safely in all five games while going 7-for-23 with four runs scored. It was the first time in three attempts that the 26-year-old successfully swiped a bag. Senzel continues to display little power at the big-league level with just four extra-base hits in 117 plate appearances this season.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Day off Tuesday

    Senzel will sit Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    Senzel owns a .545 OPS in seven games since his return from the COVID-19 injured list, though that actually represents an improvement on the .530 OPS he posted in 17 games prior to his absence. Albert Almora will start in center field in Senzel's absence.
