Senzel (heel) remains out of the Reds' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.
Senzel was forced to exit Thursday's game early and has not been in the starting lineup since. The Reds have said they don't expect him to miss an extended amount of time, but his absence opens playing time for Jonathan India at second base and Tyler Naquin in center field.
Senzel (heel) will sit Friday against the Rockies.
Senzel left Thursday's series opener with what was eventually diagnosed as a heel contusion after crashing into the outfield wall while chasing a flyball. The Reds don't expect him to miss an extended period, but he'll sit for at least one game, with Jonathan India getting the start at second base and Tyler Naquin starting in center field.
Senzel (heel) is not expected to have a long-term absence, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Senzel exited Thursday's contest in the third inning and was diagnosed with a heel contusion. While it appears he avoided a serious injury, it remains unclear when he will be able to return to the lineup. Shogo Akiyama could see an uptick in playing time if Senzel remains sidelined for the team's weekend series against the Rockies at Coors Field.
Senzel exited Thursday's contest against the Rockies with a heel contusion.
Senzel appeared to injure himself after running into the wall in the first inning. He remained in the game for another frame before being pulled but appears to have avoided serious injury. If he is forced to miss further game action, Shogo Akiyama figures to be a potential beneficiary.
Senzel exited Thursday's game against the Rockies with an undisclosed injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Senzel hit the outfield wall trying to track down a fly ball in the first inning. He remained in the contest for an additional inning, but Shogo Akiyama replaced him as a pinch-hitter in the third frame. Though no specifics were given, the news is concerning given Senzel's lengthy history of injury.
Senzel went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to the Pirates.
The move back to second base seems to be agreeing with Senzel. The 25-year-old has hit safely in five straight games, going 8-for-20 (.400) over that span, and the hot streak has pushed his slash line on the season up to .277/.355/.351.
Senzel will lead off and start at second base Tuesday against the Pirates.
Rather than forcing Senzel to compete with Tyler Naquin for work in center field, manager David Bell has found a way to keep both hot-hitting players in the lineup by deploying Senzel at the keystone. With Senzel having now made five starts at second base this season and three in the past four games, Jonathan India appears to have shifted into a reserve role. Given that India is one of the organization's top prospects, he could soon be sent to Triple-A Louisville in order to pick up everyday at-bats.
Senzel went 2-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a run scored Monday against the Pirates.
Senzel had plenty to contribute at the dish in the series opener, driving home a pair in the fourth inning on a single to right followed by an RBI double in the eighth. He's in the midst of a modest five-game hitting streak and has put together a .256/.340/.333 slash line with one homer, eight RBI and two stolen bases over 31 games in 2021.
Senzel (shoulder) will start in center field and bat sixth Wednesday against the White Sox.
Senzel was scratched from the lineup ahead of Tuesday's 9-0 loss to the White Sox, but that was mostly for precautionary purposes while he managed a sore shoulder. The injury is apparently only a minor concern for Senzel, who should see the bulk of the work in center field over Tyler Naquin now that his bat has begun to wake up. Over his last 10 games, Senzel is slashing .303/.385/.424 with a home run and a 5:4 BB:K.
Senzel (shoulder) will be in the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The 25-year-old was scratched from Tuesday's starting nine with shoulder soreness, but he's expected to be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale. Senzel is 6-for-15 with one homer, two walks, one stolen base, two RBI and two runs over his past four games.
Senzel was scratched from the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox due to a sore shoulder, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
This is already the second time the oft-injured outfielder has dealt with a shoulder injury this season, as he left the Reds' Opening Day contest for the same reason. He missed only one game that time, but it remains to be seen whether he'll be similarly lucky this time around. Tyler Naquin entered the lineup as his replacement.
Senzel will start at second base and bat seventh Sunday against the Cubs.
Senzel came up through the Reds' farm system as an infielder, but he's logged more than 99 percent of his innings in the outfield since reaching the majors in 2019. However, he'll be picking up his second start at the keystone in four games as the Reds look to find a replacement for rookie Jonathan India, who was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. Given that India looked overmatched over his first month in the big leagues, he could be optioned to Triple-A Louisville once activated from the IL. That could allow Senzel to settle in as the Reds' everyday second baseman while opening up a regular role in the outfield for the hot-hitting Tyler Naquin, who carries a .934 OPS into Sunday's contest.
Senzel went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 8-6 win over the Cubs.
The 25-year-old effectively ended Jake Arrieta's night with his fourth-inning blast, Senzel's first long ball of the season. He's been feast or famine at the plate this season, as Friday's effort was the first time he registered exactly one hit in a game, but he wraps up April hitting .254 with two steals, four RBI and 11 runs through 24 contests.
Senzel went 4-for-4 in Wednesday's loss against the Dodgers.
The Reds struggled massively on offense Wednesday and only mustered seven hits against the Dodgers' pitching staff, but Senzel was responsible for four of those knocks. The centerfielder snapped a three-game hitless streak, but he has been extremely inconsistent and has gone just 7-for-43 (.162) over his last 15 games.
Senzel is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Senzel went 0-for-6 with two walks and an RBI over the past two games. Tyler Naquin will start in center field and bat fifth for Cincinnati.
Senzel isn't starting Saturday's game against the Cardinals, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Senzel will get a breather after he went 4-for-11 with a double, one walk and a strikeout over the last three games. Tyler Naquin will take over in center field Saturday, batting fifth.
Senzel went 2-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to Arizona. He was also caught stealing once.
The center fielder's unimpressive start to 2021 has been marked by a .227 average and only two RBI in 44 at-bats. Only a few years removed from being a top-10 prospect in baseball, Senzel has yet to truly impress at the MLB level, hitting .243 with 52 RBI in 489 career at-bats. He does take a fair number of walks, and thus gets on base at a respectable rate, but will lack legitimate fantasy value until his offensive game reaches the next level.
Senzel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Though Senzel isn't known to be dealing with an injury, he'll remain on the bench for a second game in a row after he was left out of the starting nine for Saturday's 3-2 win. Senzel's benching appears to be performance-related, as he's gone hitless in 16 at-bats over the Reds' last six games. Tyler Naquin will make another start in center field in place of Senzel.
Senzel isn't starting Saturday's game against Cleveland.
Senzel has gone 0-for-16 with three strikeouts across the past five games. Tyler Naquin will take over in center field Saturday, batting fifth.
