Moustakas to injured list with bruised quad

August 9th, 2020

The Reds placed second baseman on the 10-day injured list with a bruised left quad on Sunday, five days after he exited a game against the Indians in the sixth inning. The move is retroactive to Thursday. Cincinnati filled Moustakas' spot on the 28-man roster with right-hander Tejay Antone, who was recalled from the alternate training site.

“It’s a little bit unknown,” Reds manager David Bell said earlier this week. “It started bothering him [Monday] night, and then he did everything he needed to do to get into the lineup [Tuesday], got treatment on it and everything. He thought everything was good to go, and as the game went on, it continued to bother him."

Moustakas, who also missed three days on the injured list because he was in the COVID-19 health and safety protocol after not feeling well, is batting .238/.333/.524 with two homers and six RBIs in seven games.
