Cincinnati Reds Roster
- NL Central
- Great American Ball Park
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Travis Jankowski (hamstring) has progressed to running drills as he works his way back from a strained hamstring. According to team manager David Bell, the team expects no "further limitations" when it comes to Jankowski's injured hamstring. Jankowski originally injured the hamstring back on February 29 when he pulled up while running the bases. The former San Diego Padre is fighting for a spot on the Opening Day roster.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Josh VanMeter (shin) is feeling good, according to manager David Bell. VanMeter had been dealing with left shin tendinitis during spring training but should be fine for Opening Day, whenever that may be. Bell told reporters that VanMeter is now feeling 100%. The 25-year-old was competing for a spot on the Opening Day roster before the coronavirus delayed the start of the season. At most, he might have some appeal for depth purposes in NL-only leagues if he makes the Opening Day roster.
Cincinnati Reds shortstop Freddy Galvis (quad) is feeling 100%, according to manager David Bell. Galvis missed some time in spring training with a left quad strain before camps were suspended by the coronavirus last week. The layoff has proven to be helpful for Galvis, who should be able to hit the ground running once teams are allowed to begin baseball activities again. Galvis is currently running, throwing, and fielding on his own as he prepares for the start of the season. The veteran will open the year as Cincy's starting shortstop.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel (shoulder) has seen his rehab slowed by the suspended camps this spring. Senzel is working his way back after having labrum surgery on his right shoulder back in September. According to manager David Bell, the layoff has slowed Senzel's rehab, indicating that Senzel would be about a week further along if camp wasn't interrupted by the coronavirus. That being said, the long delay before MLB gets back in action buys Senzel enough time to get back on track before Opening Day.
Cincinnati Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez (shoulder) plans to resume his throwing, swinging, and fielding programs next week. Suarez had offseason shoulder surgery after a swimming pool accident and was scheduled to make his spring debut last week before MLB suspended camps. According to team manager David Bell, Suarez is "feeling great" and is on track with his rehab. The extra time due to the coronavirus almost guarantees that Suarez will be in the starting lineup on Opening Day.
