Jesse Winker to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery

2 Comments

Reds outfielder Jesse Winker will have season-ending surgery on his right shoulder, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Winker landed on the disabled list on Thursday with a right shoulder subluxation. A subluxation is a fancy way of saying “partial dislocation.” It isn’t clear exactly when Winker suffered the injury.

Winker, 24, impressed with a .299/.405/.431 triple-slash line along with seven home runs, 43 RBI, and 38 runs scored in 334 plate appearances this season, his first full season in the majors.

Winker has been alternating between left and right field this season. Phillip Ervin should see regular starts in right field with Winker absent and Adam Duvall should handle left field on a full-time basis.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
