The Cincinnati Reds have had a tough go of it this year. Performances of several players has not been what was expected, injuries have plagued the team, and they’ve also been a bit unlucky.
The injuries continue. The Reds today put outfielder Chris Heisey on the disabled list.
Heisey is dealing with a strained left oblique. He was too sore to hit and play the field Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
To replace him, outfielder Dave Sappelt was called up from the Louisville Bats. In AAA, Sappelt was good, hitting .313 with a .387 on base percentage and 7 home runs and 27 RBI. Hopefully he can also avoid the injury bug.
