In other injury news, the Reds moved center fielder Nick Senzel, who’s been sidelined with a left knee injury since May 18, to the 60-day injured list Sunday. That means he won’t return until July 17 at the earliest.
With Moustakas and Senzel out, Kyle Farmer and Tyler Naquin have become regular starters. Naquin’s hitting .261 with 11 home runs and 41 RBIs in 57 games, while Farmer’s hitting .214 with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 62 games.
“The injuries have created some opportunities for some guys,” Bell said, “so we’re even in better shape maybe than we thought we were going into the year.”
