CINCINNATI — Nick Senzel of the Cincinnati Reds is scheduled to have knee surgery and could miss four to six weeks.

The Reds also announced that right-handed starter Jeff Hoffman has been put on the 10-day injured list with a sore shoulder.

Senzel, who began the season as the center fielder before moving to third base, has been on the 10-day injured list with left knee inflammation. He hasn’t played since May 17.

Senzel and Hoffman are the latest injuries for the Reds. First baseman Joey Votto is recovering from a fractured thumb. Mike Moustakas, who moved from third base to first base after Votto was hurt, is out with a heel injury.

Left-handed starter Wade Miley, who threw a no-hitter against Cleveland May 7, was put on the 10-day injured list May 21 with a left foot sprain.

Outfielder Aristides Aquino, on the injured list since April 16 when he had hand surgery, is expected to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville in the next week.
