MILWAUKEE – The Reds novice pitcher Hunter Greene, already close to his total innings from all over last year, Hunter Greene felt the effects of the overload two months before the end of the 2022 season.
When Greene wasn’t feeling well during Friday’s bullpen session, Cincinnati took no chances and put him on Friday’s list of 15-day injuries with a strain on his right arm.
“He’s back to watch it and pass his exam,” said Reds manager David Bell. “It’s serious enough to move to IL, but hopefully no more serious than holding it for 15 days and then getting it back so he can finish his first season right here. a break of at least 15 days. ‘
The move runs backwards to Tuesday. Greene was replaced on the list by deputy Ryan Hendrix who was dismissed from Triple-A Louisville.
“Just a bit of shoulder fatigue,” Greene said. “I just want to be careful and do the right thing. We’ll see where it goes. “
Greene will travel to Cincinnati on Saturday, where he will be examined by the team’s doctors.
“It’s frustrating to deal with it, but that’s the way it is,” Greene said. “I am definitely looking towards the positives to come back as soon as possible.”
Overall, it was a difficult debut for Greene. The right hand is 4-12 with a 5.26 ERA in 20 starts, but leads the team with 127 strikes. There is also the second one in Majors with 23 commutes home.
Greene has made 102 2/3 innings this season after working 106 1/3 in 2021 for the Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Louisville in ’21. Before making his major league debut in April, he made a total of 179 innings over three Minor League seasons, including more than a two-year hiatus from throwing due to Tommy John’s right elbow surgery and Minor League ’20 season cancellation due to COVID-19.
“I definitely want to keep pushing,” said Greene. “I don’t want to include the timeline [the injury]. We’ll see where it goes. “
Greene was due to start on Sunday vs. Brewers. The exchange has not been announced. Team rotation has already witnessed the departure of veterans Luis Castillo and Tyler Mahle from trading over the past week.
During Monday’s 3-1 victory for The Reds over the Marlins, 22-year-old Greene was tough, throwing six no-goal rounds with one allowable hit, two clubs hit and eight strikes.
“It’s something he felt every now and then, and he just felt a little more during the last take-off,” said Bell. “We thought he was going to be okay, and he even threw a pen today, and then it felt a little more than normal.”
