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

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

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 had 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.

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

Senzel (finger) is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Cleveland, batting seventh and playing center field.

Senzel was scratched from Monday's lineup due to a sprained left ring finger, but the injury evidently wasn't particularly serious. He's gotten off to a strong start this season, hitting .286 with a homer, four doubles and a steal through his first six games.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Scratched from Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel was scratched from Monday's lineup against Cleveland with a sprained left ring finger, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Senzel sustained the injury while sliding into a base during Sunday's game against the Tigers. He was going to try testing it out Monday, but he'll instead take a day off to recover. Shogo Akiyama will shift to center field, while Christian Colon will enter the lineup as the designated hitter, batting eighth.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Goes deep in first game back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Cubs.

Senzel took Rex Brothers yard in the fifth inning, capping a seven-run inning for the Reds. It was Senzel's first home run of the season, and welcomed production after he was out of the lineup for the team's past three games due to illness. He has gotten off to a relatively slow start with the bat otherwise, but has struck out only once in 12 plate appearances.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel will bat seventh and play center field Wednesday against the Cubs.

Senzel missed the last three games with what was ultimately determined to be a non-COVID illness. He's still looking for his first hit of the year after going 0-for-7 in his first two games.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Cleared to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (illness) announced on his personal Twitter page Wednesday that he'd been cleared to return to the field.

Seznel and teammate Mike Moustakas had been out of action for the past few days due to an illness, but neither player ever tested positive for COVID-19. They had to appeal a panel of league and union representatives to be allowed back on the field, but they've evidently been successful, so both could return to the lineup ahead of Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Appealing COVID-19 protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel and teammate Mike Moustakas 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. Senzel's and Moustakas' 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.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Not available until Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel (illness) tested negative for COVID-19 but won't be cleared to play until at least Thursday, teammate Nick Castellanos said after Tuesday's game, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Senzel hasn't seen game action since Saturday as he has been feeling under the weather, but he's thankfully tested negative for COVID-19 to this point. It's unclear if the team expects the 25-year-old to be fully cleared for Thursday, but it's apparently the earliest he might be able to take the field.

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

Senzel (illness) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs.

Senzel fell ill prior to Sunday's series finale with the Tigers and was scratched from the lineup, and it appears he's still feeling under the weather 24 hours later. Phillip Ervin will draw the start in Senzel's stead, slotting in as the Reds' leadoff man and center fielder.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Not feeling well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel was scratched from Sunday's game against the Tigers since he wasn't feeling well, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

It's a worrying development for the Reds, as Mike Moustakas was scratched and placed on the injured list for similar reasons earlier in the day, and Matt Davidson tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday. The fact Senzel remains on the roster is a positive sign, though his availability for the immediate future is now up in the air.

Reds' Nick Senzel: Scratched from Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

This is the third iteration of the Reds lineup we've seen today, as Mike Moustakas was scratched after feeling under the weather and now Senzel follows suit, although the reason for his removal is unclear. Freddy Galvis moves up to the No. 7 spot in the order while Travis Jankowski slots into the eight hole while starting in center field.

July 26, 2020 02:24 PM
Reds' Nick Senzel: Late add to Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel was a late addition to Sunday's lineup and is starting in center field while batting seventh against the Tigers.

Mike Moustakas was scratched for an undisclosed reason, so there was a lineup shuffle with Senzel getting added into the mix after originally being slated for a day off.

July 26, 2020 09:08 AM
Reds' Nick Senzel: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel is not in Sunday's lineup against the Tigers.

Shogo Akiyama starts in center field while Jesse Winker starts in left field and Josh VanMeter gets the start at designated hitter. Senzel is 0-for-7 with a run, a walk, a stolen base and a strikeout through two games.

July 25, 2020 04:32 PM
Reds' Nick Senzel: More comfortable in center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Senzel is a lot more comfortable in center field after playing there for the first time last season, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I was thrown into the fire last year. I was just learning the position on the fly and during major-league games and making adjustments," Senzel said. "I didn't really have any knowledge of the position, because I'd never played in the outfield. After spending a full year in the big leagues and an offseason and a spring training and then quarantine and then this, getting prepared for my second season, I'm leaps and bounds more comfortable than I was last year."

Senzel also reported that he lost significant weight during the shutdown -- approximately 20 pounds -- in order to be faster on the basepaths and in the field. That could translate into more stolen bases on a pro-rated basis should he stay healthy this season.
