Stephens goes on DL with torn meniscus

July 24th, 2018

Reds reliever was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee on Tuesday. The move was made retroactive to Monday.
Stephens has shuffled between the Reds and Triple-A Louisville this season. In 18 appearances out of the bullpen for the Reds, Stephens has a 4.82 ERA and 23 strikeouts over 28 innings. In his last outing, on July 22, Stephens tossed 3 1/3 innings of one-run ball against the Pirates.
Stephens' place on the 25-man roster was taken by Homer Bailey, who returned from the 10-day DL and was to start Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.
