Nick Senzel News
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel (knee) is expected to return in mid-July. Senzel had surgery over a week ago to address inflammation in his left knee and landed on the 10-day injured list as a result. However, with a .261 average, fantasy managers outside of dynasty formats can safely drop him without looking back.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel (knee) could miss up to six weeks after undergoing surgery on Friday. Senzel landed on the 10-day injured list last week due to inflammation in his left knee. However, he is batting just .252 this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't feel bad for parting ways with him, especially those who don't have extra room to spare on the roster.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel (knee) will undergo knee surgery on Friday, but a timetable for his return will not be known until after the procedure is completed, according to C. Trent Rosencrans of The Athletic. Senzel was placed on the injured list with knee inflammation last week, and now manager David Bell describes the surgery as a "clean up" procedure. Bell also says that the team expects Senzel to return, "with a big part of the season remaining." Senzel really hasn't done much in fantasy this year as he's slashing .252/.323/.315 with one home run, two steals, eight RBI and 18 runs scored. If you have empty IL slots on your roster, you can try hanging onto him for now, but in the meantime Tyler Naquin will continue to get the bulk of playing time in center field.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel may be looking at his last shot to prove that he can crack the starting lineup as a regular. The former #2 overall pick has struggled with injuries, hasn't found a permanent home defensively, and has failed to produce at the plate at the pro level. As a rookie in 2019, Senzel slashed a mediocre .256/.315/.427 but showed off his wheels with 14 steals. In 2020, he struggled mightily with a slash line of .186/.247/.357 over 78 plate appearances before landing on the IL. He collected just two hits in his final 25 at-bats upon returning from injury.Once thought to be a star in the marking, he now has a role to full time at-bats as Cincinnati's primary centerfielder. With Shogo Akiyama going down with an injury this spring, Senzel has seen the majority of looks in centerfield. If he maintains that job through opening day, then Senzel is a late-round flier with little risk to acquire his services and take a chance on a breakout.
