In what was definitely not a major league game, Cincinnati’s top prospect Nick Senzel was injured this afternoon. This injury occurred in Toledo, not Minneapolis.

Once we get more information, we’ll pass it along.

I actually turned on the Louisville game since the Reds had already played, and Senzel was walking off the field.

So, if you were wondering whether anything else could go wrong in this miserable 2018 season, we have your answer: YES.

UPDATE: If you’re looking for some semblance of good news, there’s this:

I imagine we’ll hear more tomorrow.

UPDATE: Here’s the video of the injury. It doesn’t look good to me, but I only play a doctor on teevee:

    Please don’t let it be similar to the injury Ryan Ludwick sustained.

    In regards to Reds prospects, what are the Reds going to do with Shed Long? He is at 2B, which will be the spot for Senzel and Suarez is at 3B.

    It appears Long is not far from being MLB ready

      He is only at AA now so he probably isn’t quite ready yet. If he gets promoted to AAA when Senzel gets called up. maybe next year that question needs answered

    Not a doctor but coached HS football for 10 years and the way that shoulder is hanging is not a good sign at all. Hoping for the best but not expecting it.

    Didn’t Dilson Hererra have a non-structural shoulder injury a couple years back? Just sayin’.
