The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans reports that Reds outfielder Nick Senzel will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

Senzel, 24, appeared to suffer the injury making a catch against the center field fence in St. Louis on August 31. He played in his team’s next seven games but hasn’t played since September 7 and hasn’t logged an official plate appearance since the 5th.

Senzel’s rookie season ends with him batting .256/.315/.427 with 12 home runs, 42 RBI, 55 runs scored, and 14 stolen bases in 414 plate appearances.

Robert Murray reports that Brewers infielder Luis Urías underwent surgery to repair a fractured left hamate bone, suffered during a game in the Mexican Pacific Winter League. The club expects him to miss six to eight weeks, which likely means he will not start the regular season on time.

The Brewers acquired Urías from the Padres along with pitcher Eric Lauer in late November in exchange for pitcher Zach Davies and outfielder Trent Grisham.

Last season with the Padres, Urías hit .223/.329/.326 across 249 plate appearances. While his offense isn’t anything to write home about, he does play above-average defense with the ability to play several positions.

Urías was slated to be the regular shortstop, so his late start likely means Orlando Arcia will get another chance to prove himself. Arcia has failed to live up to expectations across four seasons in the big leagues thus far.
