Reds Former Top Prospect Undergoes Surgery

According to Cincinnati Reds beat writer Bobby Nightengale, outfielder Nick Senzel underwent successful surgery to repair the broken bone in his fractured toe.

The Reds were reportedly hoping that Senzel would not require surgery, but his toe was not healing as expected so surgery was necessary.

The good news is he's expected to be ready for the start of spring training. 

Senzel slashed a poor .231/.296/.306, with five home runs, 25 RBIs, eight stolen bases and 45 runs scored over 110 games last season. 

The former top prospect and second overall pick in the 2016 MLB Draft has not been able to find success, or consistent health, at the major league level yet. Over his four-year career, the twenty-seven-year-old holds a slash line of .240/.303/.360, with 20 home runs, 83 RBIs, 26 stolen bases and 126 runs scored across 273 games played.
