Nick Senzel News
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel (knee) was placed back on the 10-day injured list on Thursday with fluid on his knee, according to Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Senzel had just been activated from the injured list on Sunday and was optioned to Triple-A, but after several examinations from doctors this week, it was determined he had a buildup of fluid in his knee resulting from the arthroscopic surgery that had kept him sidelined since mid-May. Nightengale reports that Senzel had attempted to play through the pain over the past few days at Triple-A, but he was unable to keep it up. Senzel is slashing .252/.323/.315 with one homer, two steals, eight RBI and 18 runs scored over 36 games this year, and at this point managers in redraft formats can safely drop him to the waiver wire.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel (knee) was activated from the 60-day injured list on Sunday and optioned to Triple-A Louisville, according to Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Senzel has been out of action since mid-May due to arthroscopic knee surgery, and prior to the injury he was slashing .252/.323/.315 with one homer, two steals, eight RBI and 18 runs scored over 36 games. General manager Nick Krall said that the decision to keep Senzel at Triple-A was to maintain some depth on their roster, as Senzel still had options remaining. It's unclear just when Senzel could get called up to rejoin Cincinnati, but the reality is it's unlikely he'll have much value in fantasy to close out the year.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel (knee) had two singles and a double in a rehab game at Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday. Senzel has been on the injured list since May after having arthroscopic knee surgery. The veteran outfielder was hitting .252 with a homer, 18 runs, eight RBI, and two steals over 36 games before the injury. He is trending toward rejoining the team in the next week or so. Senzel has been playing outfield and shortstop during his rehab assignment.
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.
