Former Top Prospect To Be Cincinnati Reds Starting Center Fielder This Season

He's still recovering from offseason surgery to repair a broken left toe back in November.

Although he might not be ready for the start of spring training, Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell told reporters that he expects Nick Senzel to be in center field on Opening Day.

In fact, Senzel is expected to be the Reds starting center fielder this season.
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. However, the 110 games were a career-high for him.

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.
