As I suspected in the game wrap-up thread yesterday, Edwin Encarnacion has been diagnosed with a Bone Chip in his left wrist, and has been placed on the 15-Day DL. He also is battling a right shoulder issue, that bothers him when throwing. Adam Rosales has been called up, and should be available by game time tonight.
Let's hope EdE can get healthy , get some rest, and have a good rehab, and while he is away Rosales rakes in his absence. EdE battled a wrist problem in Spring Training, and you have to wonder and assume that's why he hasn't been all that good so far this year. Other than his Grand Salami in Milwaukee, can anyone remember a hard hit ball of his bat?
Funny, John Fay had a quote from Dusty this afternoon that said Edwin "wasn't ban enough for DL". Looks like it's a good thing the Reds poked him with Doc Kremchek's stick.
