Reds Injury Update

Since the last update, Denis Phipps and Scott Rolen have hit the DL, while Miguel Cairo came off it. He returned about a week after he was expected to, lending credence to the BubbaFan mantra of "it's always a longer time than they say." Phipps was placed on the 7-day minor league DL, which is standard procedure for anything that isn't a season-ending injury. I have seen no timetable for his expected return, but he's been sidelined for eight days now. Scott Rolen has shoulder problems again. He's already had 4 surgeries, two since becoming a Red. I don't foresee him going under the knife again personally, so all parties are probably hoping rest will allow the inflammation and pain to subside over his 15-day DL stint. It's been 12 days and I don't get the impression Rolen is close to returning. Considering the persistence of this problem for Rolen over so much time now, we could be seeing the end of a career. On the bullpen front, there's still no word on Masset's return. He's been sidelined for almost two months on the dot, and has not begun throwing. Bill Bray was also experiencing problems during spring training which failed to subside, and which now has him on the DL, where he's been for 37 days. The Reds have offered no insight into a timetable. Also at AAA, Daryl Jones had eye surgery two weeks ago and remains sidelined. Louisville is having a tough time keeping all our potential 8th outfielders healthy. Paul Janish's broken wrist is expected to keep him out for two and a half more weeks. Dioner Navarro returned to action after passing kidney stones and missed 8 days. Sean Buckley went onto and came off the DL for a sprained ankle at A Dayton; maybe we can blame that for his disappointing recent performance. As always, you can get the organization's injury situation at a glance by the link on the left sidebar, or click the title to this FanShot at your convenience.
