Injuries & Roster Moves: Santillan joins staff

7:57 PM UTC

Keep track of the Reds’ recent transactions and injury updates throughout the season.


June 12: RHP Tony Santillan recalled from Triple-A Louisville
Santillan was summoned to make his Major League debut Sunday in a start vs. the Rockies in place of the injured Sonny Gray. Santillan will wear No. 64.

June 11: RHP Tejay Antone placed on the 10-day IL with right forearm inflammation
The Reds placed Antone on the 10-day IL prior to Friday's game as a largely precautionary maneuver. The inflammation is not in the same area that forced Antone to undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the 2017 season, so both the right-hander and manager David Bell are "very confident" in a speedy recovery.


10-day IL

RHP Tejay Antone (right forearm inflammation)
Expected return:
June 18
Antone could have pitched through the forearm soreness, but it was starting to cause him to miss more days of availability in order to recover. The hope is the rest will calm down the inflammation and he will be ready to pitch on the first day he is eligible for activation. (Last updated: June 11)

3B/1B Mike Moustakas (right heel contusion)
Expected return:
Moustakas did some running on the field on June 9 and described his effort at 90 percent. There is still no target date for when he might go on a rehab assignment, but the Reds feel like he is getting closer. (Last updated: June 10)

RHP Sonny Gray (right groin strain)
Expected return: TBD
Gray, who was removed prior to the top of the fourth against the Brewers on June 8 after feeling a pull in his groin while warming up between innings, was placed on the 10-day injured list on June 9. (Last updated: June 9)

RHP Michael Feliz (right elbow)
Expected return: TBD
Feliz was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow injury on June 8. In his last appearance on June 6, Feliz was charged with five earned runs without recording an out against the Cardinals. His placement is retroactive to June 7. (Last updated: June 8)

INF Max Schrock (left calf)
Expected return:
Schrock departed the club's May 31 win over the Phillies after tweaking his left calf between first and second base on a seventh-inning double. He was placed on the 10-day injured list on June 1. (Last updated: June 1)

RHP Jeff Hoffman (right shoulder impingement)
Expected return:
Hoffman exited the May 26 game vs. the Nationals with right shoulder soreness after tossing just 1 1/3 innings and walking five batters and landed on the 10-day injured list. (Last updated: May 27)

IF Alex Blandino (broken right hand)
Expected return: 3-6 weeks
Blandino was hit on the hand by a pitch from the Cardinals’ Jake Woodford during the Reds' 6-4 win on June 4. Manager David Bell said it was a clean break and that the injury would not require surgery. (Last updated: June 5)

OF Nick Senzel (left knee surgery)
Expected return:
4-6 weeks
Senzel underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on May 28 to clean out damaged cartilage behind the patella of his left knee. (Last updated: May 29)

60-day IL

OF Aristides Aquino (left hamate fracture)
Expected return:
June 13
Aquino has hit well in his rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville. Through June 9, he was 5-for-15 with two doubles and a homer while playing right field. Manager David Bell is hopeful that Aquino could be activated on June 13, the first day he is eligible. (Last updated: June 10)

RHP Michael Lorenzen (right shoulder strain)
Expected return:
Some time after the All-Star break
Lorenzen is still rehabilitating in Arizona but he is pleased with his progress. Manager David Bell revealed that the right-hander is no longer a candidate to go into the rotation and will be working his way back to a bullpen role in the second half.

“I spoke with Michael yesterday. He’s excited,” Bell said. “He had a great day yesterday. He said everything he did yesterday felt like he was never injured. There’s still some steps. There is still a progression. But he’s very determined to get back and help our team. The time is moving pretty slow for him, especially as he watches our games on TV. He can’t wait to get back. Maybe it’s an All-Star break thing for him. He will come back as a reliever. He’s not going to have to build up to be a starter. We’ll get him back quicker that way.” (Last updated: June 3)
