Reds injuries and roster moves

October 1st, 2023

The offseason is here for the Reds, but not all players are fully healed from injuries sustained during the 2023 season. Players currently on the 60-day injured list will need to be added back onto the 40-man roster after the conclusion of the World Series.

Continue to check this page throughout the offseason for updates.



INF Matt McLain (right oblique strain)
Expected return: 2024
After playing in two games of a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville on Sept. 23-24, McLain aggravated his right oblique injury -- a Grade 2 strain -- and did not return to the club for its final week of the season. Offseason rest is expected to have McLain healed and ready for Spring Training. (Last updated: Oct. 1)

RHP (right elbow discomfort)
Expected return: TBD
Antone was expected to rejoin the Reds before the end of the regular season, but manager David Bell said on Sept. 23 that the reliever was progressing slower than expected. Antone has made just five appearances since Aug. 24, 2021, after Tommy John surgery canceled his entire '22 season and a flexor strain in his right forearm stole much of '23. (Last updated: Oct. 1)

60-day IL

RHP (stress reaction in right big toe)
Expected return:
Ashcraft had successful surgery in Charlotte, N.C., on Sept. 19 and was expected to make a full recovery well ahead of 2024 Spring Training. He exited what turned out to be his final start on Sept. 1 after five-plus innings because of pain in his right big toe and was diagnosed with a stress reaction the next day. He was moved to the 60-day IL on Sept. 18. (Last updated: Sept. 20)

RHP (Tommy John surgery)

Gutierrez was returned from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville due to triceps pain. He was diagnosed with bone chips in his right elbow and scheduled for surgery to remove them on Sept. 20. The injury was not considered related to the surgery he had in 2022. (Last updated: Sept. 18)

LHP (left tibia stress reaction)
Expected return: 2024
Reds general manager Nick Krall confirmed on Aug. 31 that Lodolo's season is over after the left-hander received a second opinion in New York about his injury the previous day. Manager David Bell said that Lodolo would not have surgery or return to wearing a boot. The expectation is that rest will let his leg heal, and could have him able to return for next season. Out since mid-May, Lodolo endured a setback on Aug. 20 during his rehab start with Triple-A Louisville. An MRI exam revealed a recurrence of a stress reaction in his left tibia.

RHP (right shoulder)
Expected return: 2024
Dunn received a second opinion on his shoulder after experiencing a setback in his recovery, and learned that he would need season-ending surgery to repair the anterior capsule. He made three appearances for Triple-A Louisville before his rehab assignment was halted on Aug. 24.

The right-hander, who has dealt with shoulder issues in each of the past two seasons, has been out since Spring Training because of soreness in the subscapularis muscle in his right rotator cuff. (Last updated: Sept. 1)
