Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel’s rookie season has come to an end after suffering a torn labrum in his right shoulder, according to The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans.
The 24-year-old center fielder played through the injury until Sept. 7 and the team held him out of the lineup with hopes he could recover after some rest. Unfortunately for Senzel, the pain in his shoulder never went away and tests confirmed the season-ending injury.
Senzel posted a .256/.315/.427 slash line with 12 home runs, 14 stolen bases and 55 runs scored in 375 at-bats. It isn’t yet known at this time if he will require surgery, which would impact his availability for the start of the 2020 season.
