Riddle will undergo surgery next Friday to repair the slap tear in his left shoulder, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Riddle was already expected to miss the remainder of the 2017 season, and this news simply confirms that. Riddle will look to get healthy prior to the 2018 campaign while Miguel Rojas will close out the season as the Marlins' primary shortstop.
Riddle (shoulder) is likely out for the rest of the 2017 season, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The young shortstop has seen little improvement in his injured left shoulder during his rehab process, so it seems like the Marlins are simply going to press the reset button on him and have him gear up for 2018, although no official announcement has been made yet. If Riddle does in fact miss the remainder of the year, he'll finish with a .250/.282/.355 slash line with 31 RBI in 70 games played. Miguel Rojas will likely man shortstop regularly without Riddle in the fray.
Riddle (shoulder) has seen little progress while recovering from tendinitis and will consult with a doctor Monday, Craig Davis of the Miami Sun Sentinel reports.
The rookie has been dealing with shoulder pain for quite some time and only served to aggravate the injury by landing on it during a diving attempt last week. Riddle said the issue hasn't responded to rest and treatment, even though MRI results came back inconclusive. His return date remains foggy for now, meaning Miguel Rojas will continue seeing a majority of playing time at shortstop.
Riddle (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day DL on Tuesday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
He is battling shoulder tendinitis, so his timetable for return is a little murky. Miguel Rojas would be next in line at shortstop, but he is day-to-day with a shoulder injury. For now, Mike Aviles, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A as a corresponding move, will get some starts at shortstop. Riddle was hitting .250/.282/.355 with three home runs in 70 games prior to the injury.
Riddle has missed the Marlins' last four games, but it wasn't revealed until Monday that the shoulder issue may have played a role in the string of absences. The rookie's expected move to the disabled list comes at a difficult time for the Marlins, who were already starved for depth on the left side of the infield with Martin Prado (knee) on the disabled list, Adeiny Hechavarria having since been traded away and Riddle's replacement at shortstop, Miguel Rojas, sustaining a shoulder injury in Monday's game. Rojas is listed as day-to-day and is expected to avoid the DL for the time being, but utility man Mike Aviles will be recalled to provide some insurance in the infield while Riddle is sidelined.
