Senzel will be in a walking boot for a week or two after spraining his right ankle in a minor-league game Monday. The injury will likely prevent the Reds from calling Senzel up immediately after securing an extra year of team control. He'll be out of the boot by the time that day passes, but he'll still need time to get back into game shape. If the Reds are serious about wanting him to work on his defense in center field, he'll need at least a handful of minor-league games once he's back on the field, further pushing back his timeline. He'll still have a good shot to spend the bulk of the season in the big leagues, but his maximum number of at-bats takes a hit with this injury.

I think the Reds keep him down longer than we all think. No way can they afford a hurt Senzel at the major league level. Senzel malingers way too much and way too often to rely on. Since u can't demote a hurt player no reason to waste a MLB roster spot waiting for Senzel's next injury?

If he gets sent to the IL in the minors, anyone know if that designation will also carry over to him on any of the usual platforms, ESPN, Yahoo, etc. ?

Senzel owners have to hope the Reds continue to struggle on offense and lose games. While the injury concern is the current issue, getting called up and getting ABs is the greater/long term concern.

Reds shut out today. Drop to 1-4. 11 Runs scored in 5 games. I know there is some financial sense to keeping a kid like Senzel under control for another year but he isn't 20 (like Acuna was last year), he's 23. He should have been up with the team from day 1, instead they send him down, he gets hurt in a meaningless minor league game where has already proven his worth and now they are digging a little hole to start the year. 

Not sure how this plays in Cinci, but if this was happening in NY the media would be killing the front office.

It can't hurt that both the Reds starting LF Winker and CF Schebler haven't gotten a hit yet this season! Kemp maybe 1 hit and Puig not much. Hopefully when Senzel is finally given a clear bill of health that it would only be a couple of weeks to knock the rust off before he is called up. Does anyone have any insight into how long he is expected to be out for?

Reds OF is something like 2/50 to start the year. Not to mention they are starting Peraza and Iglesias as their middle infield. Senzel has the clearest path to PT and if the Reds are serious at all about this season they should call him up once he's healthy. His agent is already choked, who knows if Senzel would even resign with the Reds if they choose to keep him down until mid May.

 

Any news on if the boot is off yet?

The Braves did the same to Acuna (while Acuna was younger, he was also very clearly ready) and even though Acuna was very upset that didn't stop Acuna from jumping on the 100 million dollar offer the Braves just gave him.

I own Senzel in dynasty. I like him. He should be pretty solid, but let's not get carried away. The dude has not exactly kicked down the door. He has not demonstrated any significant HR power at any stage of the minors. He has not stayed healthy at any stage of the minors. He has not been "young" for any stage of the minors. He really isn't all that accomplished to be thinking he was a no-brainer MLB option out of the gate. Also, this isn't NY. This is Cincy where money is a constraint and having a kid's prime locked into control is worth a lot. The front office shouldn't be getting heat. The agent should be defending/fighting for his client, but no one should take his words seriously.

Senzel needs to start balling and stringing together 100s of at-bats in a row without injury. Until then he really has nothing to complain about. I feel for the kid a little because he is being asked to learn a lot of positions, but in the long run that flexibility will make him more valuable. I think he will be up in Cincy a couple of weeks after he is healthy enough to play....assuming he doesn't get injured.

The better question is if the Reds would want to resign a 30ish year old player that they controlled through his prime years. Small market teams need to be smart. Smart is cost controlled prime years. If an agent is threatening his client to walk in free agency I don't think that is much of a threat to a small market club.

I'm sure they fully expect him to leave.  Or if he turns into a superstar, they will shift the money from Votto once he retires.

“could be back in the field by the end of the week and in games shortly afterward if all goes well." The 23-year-old top prospect suffered a right ankle sprain toward the end of spring training and will probably spend at least two weeks in the minors before the Reds consider calling him up, but progress is progress. Senzel could slide in at second base or center field for Cincinnati around late April or early May.”

It’s been a tough go of it so far for Senzel but I believe he’s about to put it all behind him and hit the ground running. 

Its going to be all on him and his rehab progress as to when he gets called up. Cincy is desperate on the field and at the box office. He will get everyday at bats(prolly a game off every 4 or 5 games for load management) once he does. And we all know he’s going to hit for average. He’s an excellent athlete and will run if his legs are good to go. Also, not sure how much over the fence power we will see this year, but I trust it will come sooner than later.
