Reds’ Winker out for season with shoulder injury

Reds place outfielder on DL


Highlights

Reds start four-game series vs. Phillies on Thursday night at Great American Ball Park.

The Cincinnati Reds placed outfielder Jesse Winker, a Rookie of the Year candidate who has been one of the team’s hottest hitters in July, on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder subluxation Thursday.

The news is even worse than that. He will need surgery and is done for the season.

Winker injured his shoulder Monday but said he has had problems with the shoulder for a while.

“It has bothered me for a couple of years now, on and off,” he told Hal McCoy on Tuesday. “I’m not going to address the injury or how long it might be or what might happen. I’m not comfortable talking about it.

Winker is hitting .299 with seven home runs and 43 RBIs. He ranks second in the National League in on-base percentage (.405) behind teammate Joey Votto (.419). In July, he’s hitting .442. He had a career-high 12-game hitting streak snapped Sunday.

The Reds also placed infielder Alex Blandino on the 60-day disabled list. He underwent season-ending right knee surgery Monday to reconstruct his ACL and to repair his MCL.
