The Reds take a 2-12 record into the finale of a four-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday with Senzel, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft, still with Triple-A Louisville. He's hitting .231 in nine games with one home run, two doubles and one RBI.
“We’re an organization; we’re not one person,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “This is not a situation where one person gets to say, ‘This is what happens.’ This is a decision made by a lot of people for a lot of varying reasons, and that’s where I stand on it. I think he could help us, and there’s also the argument that the people who see him and know him better than I do need to feel he’s ready, and when that time comes, I would think we would see him here, especially with (Eugenio Suarez) out.”
