Nick Senzel (elbow) said he's expected to be ready to swing a bat by the end of December.

2018 was a lost year for Senzel, who battled through vertigo issues before later requiring season-ending surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right index finger. He then tried the outfield in the instructional league in the fall before undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs from his left elbow. The good news is that his rehab is going well and he now considers himself at "90 percent." Senzel mostly saw time between second base and third base in Triple-A this past season, but there could be a spot for him in center field after the club recently non-tendered Billy Hamilton. The 23-year-old remains a player to be excited about for the long-term even though 2018 didn't go as planned.

I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Nick Senzel with a price of $11. What do you think?

Yea, I'll take that as a win. I feel bad for Nick, but he's young, and has got years ahead of him. (Didn't Chipper miss what would have been his rookie year? He turned out ok)

I hadn't heard, so when I saw your comment I was worried, but 'index finger' seems like one of the better possible injuries.

Surgery--done for the year.  Andy, your wish is granted.

Thursday's Stars

 Nick Senzel, 2B, Reds. Senzel has been on a roll since he returned from a stint on the disabled list with vertigo. Senzel hit a pair of home runs last night and is now hitting .307/.378/.506 for Triple-A Louisville.

I think Amir is where he needs to be....a multi inning 7th/8th inning guy. He got shelled as a starter last year. His stuff flattens out after abt 30 pitches and gets hit hard and often.

No. 4 on this week's Hot Sheet.

4. Nick Senzel, SS/3B, Reds
Team: Triple-A Louisville (International)
Age: 22
Why He’s Here: .406/.424/.625 (13-for-32), 4 R, 4 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 8 RBIs, 1 BB, 8 SO, 1-for-1 SB

The Scoop: Senzel missed a little less than a month with a bout of vertigo but has come back swinging ever since. In the 18 games since his return, the Reds’ top prospect has slashed .338/.398/.500 with a home run and 15 RBIs. Senzel has rotated back and forth between second base and third base all season, but on Saturday he got his first taste of the season at shortstop. With Eugenio Suarez and Scooter Gennett locked in, Senzel would raise his value exponentially if he could pull off shortstop. (JN)

At least two hits in 7 straight games in AAA. You'd think on the terrible Reds there would be a place for him, but Suarez at 3B and Scooter at 2B are doing great.

I'm solidly in 3rd place in the PCL, but offense isn't my problem. At this point I'm thinking that it might just be better for me (with the whole rookie clock thing in our league) if he just stayed down until September.

You're assuming that there is a coherent plan.

With the switch to Riggleman, are the Reds saying "Let's win now!" or simply saying, "We should be getting better."

If it's "Let's win now" then we should see Senzel soon.

If it's "Let's get better" then I think we may see some changes in the rotation (i.e Amil Garrett getting a starting gig) and more playing time for Phillip Ervin / Winker.
