Reds Pitcher Placed On Injured List

The Cincinnati Reds have placed Alexis Diaz on the 15-day injured list. 

Diaz has quietly put together a strong rookie season for the Reds, so his absence will be felt. In 27 games thus far, he has a 2-0 record to go along with a 2.40 ERA. He will now be aiming to carry over this momentum once he is ready to return. 

Although the Reds have had a bad season, it stings to hear that one of their top rookies now has to miss time. Here's to hoping that Diaz has a speedy recovery.
