Reds' Mike Moustakas: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (quadriceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, retroactive to Aug. 6.

The Reds previously hoped the 31-year-old would be able to return to action Tuesday, but he apparently requires additional time to recover from the left quad bruise. Moustakas will be eligible to be activated Aug. 16 against the Pirates. Kyle Farmer and Christian Colon should continue to fill in at the keystone for Cincinnati.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Out until Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (quadriceps) won't return to the lineup before Tuesday's game against the Royals, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Moustakas left last Tuesday's game against Cleveland with a bruised left quadriceps and hasn't played since. Manager David Bell said Friday that he's considered out, rather than day-to-day, so he's unlikely to appear at any point in the weekend series against the Brewers.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (quadriceps) is out of the lineup Friday against the Brewers.

Moustakas won't be in the lineup for the series opener against his former team as he continues to manage a left quad bruise from earlier in the week. Christian Colon take over at second base Friday for the Reds.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (quad) is not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Indians.

Moustakas will remain sidelined for a second straight game as he continues to nurse a bruised left quad. Kyle Farmer is starting at second base in this one, while Moustakas should be considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's series opener against the Brewers.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (quadriceps) is not starting Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

After dealing with a forearm injury, Moustakas returned to the lineup Monday but exited Tuesday's contest with a bruised left quad. The injury is apparently serious enough to keep him out of the lineup again as Josh VanMeter will take over at second base and bat seventh.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Bruised left quad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas left Tuesday's game with a bruised left quad, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

We'll await further word on how serious the injury is and how Moustakas suffered it. Kyle Farmer replaced him in the game.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (forearm) is in the lineup for Monday's game against Cleveland, batting third.

Moustakas was held out of the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Tigers after being hit by a pitch during Game 1. However, the issue was muscular and not particularly serious. The 31-year-old has gone 5-for-16 with two home runs and six RBI over his first five games this season.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Injury believed to be muscular
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reds manager David Bell, speaking after Sunday's doubleheader, said that the Reds believe that Moustakas' arm injury is muscular in nature, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "He got hit good in the arm. I do believe it is muscular. Temporarily that tightens up. It was impossible to do anything. The good news is if it's not near a bone, it will be a shorter recovery."

The Reds are home Monday for two games against Cleveland, then travel up to Cleveland for two more before hitting a three-game series in Milwaukee in a very important week. Hopefully we'll have more clarity on Moustakas' status before Monday's rosters lock.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Sitting with forearm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas suffered a left forearm injury in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Tigers and isn't starting in Game 2, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Moustakas was hit by a pitch in the sixth inning of Sunday's first game and was subsequently removed. He'll be replaced at second base in Game 2 of the doubleheader by Christian Colon, who is batting seventh. Whether Moustakas will be available for Monday's game against Cleveland remains to be seen.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Exits after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas was removed from Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Tigers after being hit by a pitch on the hand, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Moustakas went 0-for-2 before leading off the sixth inning with the hit by pitch, and he was subsequently replaced by a pinch runner. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 31-year-old seems unlikely to be in the lineup for Game 2 with the quick turnaround and the new seven-inning rule for doubleheaders.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas went 1-for-2 with two walks, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored Wednesday against the Cubs.

Moustakas was cleared to return after being absent from the Reds' lineup for the past three games due to an illness. He quickly produced at the plate, taking Kyle Hendricks deep in his second at-bat of the game for a two-run home run. It was Moustakas' second homer of the year, and he has now reached base in seven of his 12 plate appearances.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Hitting cleanup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas is starting at second base and batting cleanup Wednesday against the Cubs.

This was anticipated after it was revealed both Moustakas and Nick Senzel had been cleared to return, but now we have official confirmation they are both in the lineup.

July 30, 2020 11:24 PM
Reds' Mike Moustakas: Able to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (illness) is expected to return Wednesday against Cubs, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Moustakas and teammate Nick Senzel had been out of action for the past few days due to an illness, though neither tested positive for COVID-19. They apparently made a successful appeal to a panel of league and union representatives that cleared the path for their return, so they should both be back in the lineup Wednesday.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Appealing COVID-19 protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas and teammate Nick Senzel plan to appeal to a select panel of league and union representatives Wednesday regarding their MLB-mandated absences as a result of their self-reported COVID-19 symptoms, C. Trent Rosecrans and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic report.

Though both players have been held out of action since reporting their symptoms, neither has received a positive result on multiple COVID-19 tests, leading both to believe they should be eligible to play for the Reds. Moustakas' and Senzel's teammate, Nick Castellanos, relayed after Tuesday's game against the Cubs that both are unable to play until Thursday due to the current protocols in place, but a favorable ruling by the league and union committee Wednesday could expedite their returns.

July 29, 2020 02:04 AM
Reds' Mike Moustakas: Unavailable until Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Teammate Nick Castellanos said after Tuesday's game that Moustakas is testing negative for COVID-19 but can't play until at least Thursday, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Moustakas was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday after waking up not feeling well, but he was apparently only showing similar symptoms to coronavirus and has tested negative. It's unclear if the Reds expect the 31-year-old to be ready to play Thursday, but that's apparently the front end of his return timeline.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (illness) was placed on the injured list Sunday.

He woke up under the weather and was therefore scratched from Sunday's lineup. The fact that the Reds did not specify which injured list Moustakas was placed on suggests it was probably the COVID-19 injured list, although we do not have official confirmation. Josh VanMeter should act as the primary second baseman in the short term.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Under the weather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas, who was scratched from Sunday's lineup, woke up not feeling well, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "We're just being overly cautious," manager David Bell said. "If there's any doubt, we stay home."

Moustakas will undoubtedly be tested for the coronavirus and will rejoin the team once he feels up to it and tests negative. In the meantime, Josh VanMeter should see the bulk of the starts at the keystone.

July 26, 2020 02:24 PM
Reds' Mike Moustakas: Scratched from Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Tigers.

It is unclear why Moustakas was scratched from the lineup. Josh VanMeter, who was originally tabbed to DH, will slide to the keystone while Jesse Winker moves from left field to DH and Nick Senzel enters the lineup in center field.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Shines in debut with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the Reds' 7-1 win over the Tigers on Friday.

Moustakas drove in a run in his very first plate appearance (on a hit-by-pitch) and later put one "out in Adam Dunn territory," as the Reds' broadcasters put it, for his first home run in a Reds uniform. Moustakas also made a couple very nice plays at second base. Batting fifth in this lineup is an extremely advantageous spot for run production and he should be in that spot nearly every day.

Reds' Mike Moustakas: Starting intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (groin) is starting at second base and batting third in Friday's intrasquad game.

The veteran infielder missed the past two days of intrasquad action due to some groin tightness, but his quick return to the field indicates it was a minor concern. Moustakas had an .845 OPS and 35 home runs for the Brewers last season, and he's set to start at the keystone for the Reds after signing a four-year, $64 million deal in December.
