CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman provides the insight:

There is no timetable for injured veteran third baseman Scott Rolen’s return to the Reds, and there seems to be an uncertainty now whether he will be able to make it back at all.

“I really don’t know” is how Reds manager Dusty Baker responded when asked Saturday about Rolen’s status.

The 37-year-old has battled shoulder issues since his early-30s and was struggling to the tune of a .174/.238/.304 batting line through 101 plate appearances this season. His 17-year career might be over.

Todd Frazier has taken over at the hot corner in Cincinnati. He has a cool .916 OPS in 20 games.
