Padres' Max Schrock: Sent to minors camp
Schrock was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday.
Schrock had been in big-league camp as a non-roster invitee. He hit .364 with two doubles, two steals, one walk and one strikeout in 11 at-bats this spring. His ability to play all over the field and make contact at a solid clip (84.9 Contact% for his career) could earn him a promotion at some point this season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Max Schrock: Lands in San Diego
Schrock (kneecap) agreed Monday with the Padres on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
A calf injury and a fractured right kneecap limited Schrock to just 33 appearances between the majors and the Triple-A level in 2022, but the Padres are seemingly hopeful that he'll be ready to go by spring training. The 28-year-old has yet to gain much traction as a full-time utility player in the majors, but he has the ability to play all over the diamond as well as the corner outfield and has demonstrated excellent bat-to-ball skills during his time in the minors. Even if he fails to win a spot on the Friars' Opening Day roster, Schrock should at least make for strong organizational depth at Triple-A El Paso.... See More ... See Less
Max Schrock: Becomes free agent
The Reds released Schrock (kneecap) on Tuesday.
Schrock was unlikely to return to action this season after suffering a small fracture in his right kneecap in late July and was recently removed from the 40-man roster, so the Reds will allow the 27-year-old to get a fresh start on finding a new organization. The fractured kneecap along with a calf injury suffered in spring training limited Schrock to just 33 total games between the majors and Triple-A Louisville in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Booted from 40-man roster
Schrock (kneecap) was designated for assignment by the Reds on Monday.
Schrock was transferred to the 60-day injured list in early August while recovering from a fractured kneecap, but he'll now lose his spot on the 40-man roster with the Reds selecting Chase Anderson's contract from Triple-A Louisville on Monday. Even if the 27-year-old goes unclaimed on waivers, he's unlikely to return to action in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Sidelined with knee injury
Schrock will miss 3-to-4 weeks with a small fracture in his right knee cap, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Schrock was on the verge of joining Cincinnati's taxi squad, but he will instead spend a good portion of August recovering from his injury.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Heads back to minors
The Reds optioned Schrock to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The Reds should get at least one of Mike Moustakas (illness) or Albert Almora (illness) back from the COVID-19-related injured list coming out of the All-Star break, so Schrock's demotion will open up a spot for a corresponding transaction. During his four-day stint with Cincinnati, Schrock went 0-for-2 while appearing off the bench in two games.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Rejoins parent club
The Reds recalled Schrock from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday.
Schrock will make his return to the big club after Mike Moustakas was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list just over two hours before the Reds' series finale with the Yankees. Based on the timing of his placement on the IL, Moustakas is likely to miss the Reds' three-game weekend series in St. Louis, but Schrock is expected to serve as a depth option on the bench rather than a direct replacement in the lineup for Moustakas....

Reds' Max Schrock: Heads to Louisville
The Reds optioned Schrock to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.
Schrock went 4-for-24 with one RBI after returning from the injured list June 17. Big-league injuries will likely bring the versatile Schrock back to Cincinnati sometime before the season ends.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Reinstated from 60-day IL
Schrock (calf) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Friday.
Schrock began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville in late May and hit .282 with a homer, six runs and three RBI over 11 games with the minor-league club. He isn't starting Friday's game against the Brewers and isn't likely to be the primary option at any given position, but his defensive versatility should allow him to carve out playing time now that he's back to full health....

Reds' Max Schrock: Begins rehab assignment
Schrock (calf) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.
Schrock has been out all season after straining his left calf late in spring training. He'll be eligible to return from the 60-day injured list next Saturday, though it's unclear if the length of his absence will require a longer rehab assignment. There's also no guarantee he immediately joins the active roster once healthy. There are plenty of spots available on a Reds roster that has recorded the worst record in the league thus far, but Schrock's 93 wRC+ in 64 career major-league games makes him far from a lock to earn one....

Reds' Max Schrock: Nearing rehab assignment
Manager David Bell said Saturday that Schrock (calf) is expected to start a rehab assignment soon, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Schrock sustained a left calf strain in early April and began the season on the 60-day injured list. Although he isn't eligible to be activated until early June, the 27-year-old will likely be cleared to return to game action in the minors soon, which would presumably put him in line to rejoin the Reds around the time when he's first eligible to return....

Reds' Max Schrock: Participates in agility drills
Schrock (calf) participated in agility drills on the field Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Schrock sustained a left calf strain late in spring training and is on the 60-day injured list to begin the regular season. While it's encouraging that he was able to get some work in Friday, he won't be eligible to play in games for the Reds until at least early June. It's not yet clear whether he'll have a major-league roster spot once he's healthy.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Bound for 60-day injured list
Schrock will begin the season on the 60-day injured list, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Schrock strained his left calf Sunday and was initially expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. He'll now be forced to miss even more time than that, as he'll be ineligible for anything other than rehab games prior to early July. It's far from guaranteed that he'll earn a major-league roster spot once healthy, as he owns a 93 wRC+ in 64 career games at the highest level.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Facing lengthy absence
Reds manager David Bell said Monday that Schrock will be sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks due to a left calf strain, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The injury suffered in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks is a tough break for Schrock, who looked well on his way to making the Reds' Opening Day roster after submitting a 1.456 OPS through 23 spring at-bats. Schrock is now due to miss at least the first month of the season, and he may not have a role with the big club waiting for him if the likes of Donovan Solano (hamstring) and Jose Barrero (hand) are able to beat him back from the injured list. With Schrock sidelined, Brandon Drury looks in good shape to begin the season as the Reds' top utility man.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Managing calf strain
Schrock was diagnosed with a strained left calf after exiting Sunday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Schrock was poised to open the season in a utility role for the Reds, but his availability for Thursday's season opener in Atlanta is now up in the air. The 27-year-old also spent a month on the shelf with a left calf strain last year, though it's unclear how much time he's expected to miss this time around.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Max Schrock: Exits Sunday with injury
Schrock was removed from Sunday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks in the top of the third inning with an apparent injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Schrock suffered the injury in question during his groundout to end the second inning. He appeared to be in pain as he retreated to the dugout after the at-bat, but the Reds have yet to provide any specifics about his injury. The 27-year-old entered Sunday's contest with a 1.456 OPS in Cactus League play and looked like a good bet to break camp with the Reds, but he could now be at risk of beginning the season on the injured list....

Reds' Max Schrock: Roster spot battle
Schrock will be competing with Colin Moran and Donovan Solano for a roster spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Schrock is capable of playing many positions, which works in his favor, but he has less experience than Solano and Moran, both of whom signed major league deals with the team. Schrock was capable if not exciting last year for the Reds, hitting .288/.328/.448 in 134 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less

Schrock went 1-for-1 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Nationals.
Schrock pinch hit for Delino Deshields in the ninth inning and tripled off Kyle Finnegan. He started the late comeback attempt and was a part of the only two runs scored by the Reds. He primarily serves as a bench-bat and has just two RBI since Aug. 3. The 26-year-old is slashing .312/.360/.473 with two long balls, nine RBI and 14 runs scored in 100 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
