Scott Schebler injured, placed on DL

CINCINNATI — One of the hotter hitters in the Reds’ lineup will open the season’s second half on the disabled list. On Wednesday, Cincinnati placed outfielder Scott Schebler on the 10-day DL, retroactive to Sunday, with a sprained acromioclavicular (AC) joint in his right shoulder.

Schebler was forced to exit Saturday’s 8-2 win over the Cardinals after he collided with the wall to make a catch, and while initial X-rays came back negative, Wednesday’s diagnosis forced the club’s hand.

It was not known how long Schebler is expected to be out.

A corresponding roster move will be made prior to Friday night’s game against the Pirates at Great American Ball Park. This season, Schebler is batting .278/.351/.470 with 12 home runs and 37 RBIs. But he was batting .319 in his last 36 games going back to May 30.

With Schebler out, the Reds’ four-man outfield rotation will now have three regulars with Jesse Winker likely to get the bulk of the playing time in right field.

Wednesday’s move marks Schebler’s second trip to the DL this season. He missed 10 games in April with an ulnar nerve contusion in his right elbow after he was hit by a pitch from the Nationals’ Sean Doolittle.
