|Ryan Ludwick's rehab going slowly|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(4/16/13) Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick told MLB.com on Tuesday that he will remain in a sling for two more weeks as he continues to recover from shoulder surgery.
The 34-year-old added he is in the beginning of his rehabilitation.
"The process at this point is very slow, very boring," Ludwick said of his rehab. "I think when I get that sling off in two weeks, we can do some more active stuff. They've got a dog collar on me now holding me back. We'll get going."
|Ryan Ludwick shifted to 60-day DL|
|by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com|
(4/15/13) Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick (hand) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday in order to create a spot on the 40-man roster, the team announced. Ludwick is currently recovering from right shoulder surgery and is not expected to return until around the All-Star break.
|Billy Hamilton a better stash than Ryan Ludwick|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(4/3/13) Turns out Ryan Ludwick damaged cartilage when he dislocated his right shoulder on a slide Monday and the Reds have to survive the next three months without him.
I wonder what they could do about that.
Remember how, before they acquired Shin-Soo Choo, prospect Billy Hamilton -- he of the record 155 steals last year -- looked like he might have a shot to compete with Drew Stubbs for a starting job in spring training? Well, because the Reds acquired Choo, Hamilton wasn't competing for anything and, therefore, didn't stick around long enough to make an impression.
But he's already proven his worth at Double-A, having compiled a .406 on-base percentage in 175 at-bats there last year, and Choo isn't the most natural fit in either center field or the leadoff spot. Hmm, I wonder.
No, the Reds aren't going to Hamilton yet, but given what we know about Chris Heisey, he likely won't hold up as an everyday player. Provided Hamilton gets off to a good start both offensively and defensively, I say the Reds make the switch in less than three months' time.
|Ryan Ludwick to miss '13 to 14 weeks'|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/3/13) Reds manager Dusty Baker said the estimate is for outfielder Ryan Ludwick to miss "13 to 14 weeks," according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Ludwick was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday after having surgery on his injured right shoulder.
|Ryan Ludwick lands on 15-day DL|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/3/13) The Reds placed outfielder Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday. Ludwick is expected to miss several months following shoulder surgery Wednesday.
Outfielder Derrick Robinson was recalled from the minors to take Ludwick's spot on the roster. Chris Heisey replaced Ludwick in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Angels.
|Ryan Ludwick's power never really went away, it was just severely limited in cavernous PETCO Park for parts of two seasons. But given the chance to play in the opposite extreme -- the hitter-friendly Great American Ballpark -- Ludwick delivered, hitting .275 with 26 home runs in just 422 at-bats in 2012. And Ludwick didn't really get regular, every day at-bats until after the All-Star Game, from which point on he hit .309 with 14 home runs in 63 games. Ludwick has gotten 500 at-bats just once in his career and he responded with 37 home runs. with his return to the Reds as the team's starting left-fielder -- and with the team adding Shin-Soo Choo to bat leadoff -- Ludwick becomes a cheap source of power and RBI. He will likely be selected in the late rounds of most 2013 drafts and is in line to return at least later mid-round value. (Updated 12/12/12)|
