Reds' Nick Senzel: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox.

Senzel has been in the lineup just twice in five games since returning from a month-long absence for undisclosed reasons. He's gone 0-for-6 at the plate since his return. Brian Goodwin starts in center field.

Reds' Nick Senzel: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel is not starting Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

Senzel is sitting two games in a row but not two days in a row, as he started the first game of Monday's doubleheader. He won't be asked to start on consecutive days immediately upon returning from a month-long absence. Brian Goodwin will again be the center fielder in this one.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Sitting for nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel is not in the lineup for the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Senzel returned from a month-long stay on the injured list for undisclosed reasons to start the afternoon contest, going 0-for-3 at the plate. It's no surprise to see that he won't be asked to start twice in one day immediately upon his return. Brian Goodwin will start in center field in his absence.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (undisclosed) returned from the injured list Monday and will serve as the 29th man for the day's doubleheader against Pittsburgh.

While Senzel is just the extra man for now, he'll presumably remain on the roster going forward, with another player getting optioned. He's been out for exactly a month for a reason that has never been explicitly stated, though his absence came at the same time that an undisclosed person in the Reds' organization tested positive for COVID-19. He should be the team's primary center fielder going forward and will look to build on his solid .244/.327/.489 slash line from his first 14 games of the season.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Could return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager David Bell said Senzel (undisclosed) could return from the injured list for Monday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

A return Monday would be exactly a month since the 25-year-old last played in a game, so he would likely only play one of the two games. The team never provided an official reason for Senzel's absence, though it occurred when the team was unable to play following a positive test result for COVID-19 within the organization.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Won't return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (undisclosed) is not expected to be activated over the weekend but could return for the Reds' upcoming homestand, which begins Monday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Senzel last played Aug. 14, so it would be an exactly one-month absence if he returns to the lineup Monday. The Reds never clarified the nature of his absence, but given that it coincided exactly with the team's brief pause due to an unnamed member of the organization testing positive for COVID-19, it's not hard to connect the dots. He's been able to work out since the start of September, so he should be ready to go soon.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Could return during road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (undisclosed) could join the Reds for this week's road-trip stops in Chicago or St. Louis, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "It's still a build-up process for Nick. It takes time to be able to jump into this part of the season," manager David Bell said Sunday. "We have to make sure his body is completely built up. If not, you can really expose a player to an injury. We've seen it a lot this year already. We have to do what's best for Nick and encourage him to give us the proper feedback so that we can work together and get him back at the right time."

The Reds pulled Senzel from a victory line Aug. 16 and placed him on the injured list Aug. 19, right before they resumed play following a series of postponements. Senzel said on Instagram last week that he was "one step closer to returning to the field" and has reportedly been working out at the team's alternate training site. Bell makes a fair point about not wanting to rush Senzel, a player with a fairly lengthy injury history at 25 years old. That being said, Cincinnati's playoff hopes are still alive -- if barely -- and the team could always ease Senzel back into action by deploying him off the bench initially.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Resumes workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (undisclosed) resumed workouts at the Reds' alternate training site Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Senzel wrote on Instagram on Monday that he's "one step closer to returning to the field," and his presence for workouts provides an explanation for the post. The Reds never gave an explanation for his placement on the injured list. Manager David Bell said that it should take some time before Senzel is ready to return to game action. Brian Goodwin should see an increased role while Senzel remains sidelined.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Making progress toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (undisclosed) wrote on Instagram on Monday that he's "one step closer to returning to the field," Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Reds never offered a reason for why Senzel landed on the injured list in mid-August, though it's worth noting that the team was known to have a positive COVID-19 test right around that time and that the identity of the person who tested positive was never revealed. It looks as though Senzel should be ready to reclaim his role as the team's regular center fielder soon, though when exactly he'll be back in action remains unclear.

Reds' Nick Senzel: No update yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

There's been no update on Senzel's (undisclosed injury) status, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

This comment was made by Nightengale in the context of the Reds designating Phillip Ervin for assignment, leaving the team with only four active outfielders.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel was placed on the injured list Wednesday.

The Reds didn't specify a reason for the move, but it could potentially be related to the positive coronavirus test that caused the Reds' past few games to get postponed. It's possible Senzel was the person who tested positive, though players can be placed on the COVID-19 injured list merely for having been exposed to someone who tested positive, so it's difficult to know for sure. Shogo Akiyama slides to center field for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Remains negative for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel and all other Reds on the 28-man roster tested negative for COVID-19 on Sunday, making it likely the team will be able to return to action Tuesday in Kansas City, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The Reds had the final two games of their weekend series versus the Pirates postponed after a Cincinnati player was revealed to have tested positive for the coronavirus Friday. Senzel was widely speculated to be the player in question after the team pulled him from the victory line following Friday's 8-1 win, but he now looks to be in the clear with the entire roster having since tested negative. The center fielder previously missed three games in July after self-reporting possible symptoms of the coronavirus, though he never actually tested positive.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Pulled from victory line Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel was pulled from Friday night's victory line and was visibly upset, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "It's just something personal and internal with Nick and our team that we'll have more information on coming up," manager David Bell said.

The Reds and Pirates have been out of action this weekend after a Reds player tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday night. That player hasn't yet been named, nor have the Reds elaborated on Senzel's status. Eventually we'll understand whether those two issues are related.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Big day at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run and four RBI against the Pirates on Thursday.

Senzel connected for his second home run of the season, taking Trevor Williams deep in the fourth inning for a two-run homer. Two frames earlier, he delivered an RBI single to drive in the Reds' first run of the contest. Through 49 plate appearances, Senzel is hitting .262/.333/.524.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (groin) is back in the lineup as expected Tuesday against the Royals, leading off and playing center field.

Senzel left Friday's game against the Brewers with a tight left groin and sat out both of the Reds' weekend games. He's hit a respectable .233/.314/.467 through 10 games this season.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Expected back Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reds manager David Bell said Senzel (groin) checked out fine during a workout Sunday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Bell expects Senzel to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Royals.

Though Senzel will be on the bench for a second straight day in Sunday's series finale in Milwaukee after tweaking his left groin in Friday's opener, the injury doesn't appear to be a major concern. Travis Jankowski will pick up a start in center field in his stead, but Senzel may still be available to pinch hit.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Remains out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (groin) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Milwaukee.

The 25-year-old exited Friday's series opener with left groin tightness, and he'll be out of the lineup for the final two games of the series. The Reds have a scheduled off day Monday, so the team is likely just being cautious to give Senzel an extra day to recover. Travis Jankowski will start in center field Sunday for Cincinnati.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Out until Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (groin) isn't expected to return to the lineup before Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Senzel left Friday's game against the Brewers with a tight left groin, and it now appears as though he'll be out for the entirety of the weekend series. He should receive at least three full days of rest as the Reds have an off day scheduled for Monday. Travis Jankowski replaced him in center field Friday, though it will be Phillip Ervin who starts in his place Saturday.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (groin) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.

Senzel left Friday's contest with a tight left groin and will sit for at least one game. It's not clear how much time he's expected to miss, but with an off day coming up Monday, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit Sunday as well in order to get three straight days of rest. Phillip Ervin starts in center field in his absence.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Exits Friday's game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel exited Friday's game against the Brewers with left groin tightness.

Senzel was replaced in center field by Travis Jankowski in the bottom of the fourth inning Friday as a result of his injury. It's not clear how he sustained the injury, and whether he misses any additional time remains to be seen.
