The Cincinnati Reds will be without infielder/outfielder Nick Senzel for approximately four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, manager David Bell told reporters Wednesday.

Senzel, who had been placed on the 10-day injured list on Friday because of left knee inflammation, has played in just 59 of 106 possible games over the past two seasons partly due to a series of injuries, including a torn labrum toward the end of his 2019 rookie season.

The former No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft, Senzel has split time this season between second base, third base and center field. In 36 games, Senzel is hitting .252 with one home run and eight RBIs.

Since debuting in the majors in 2019, Senzel, who turns 26 next month, has produced a .246/.308/.396 batting line over 163 games with 15 homers and 58 RBIs.
