(4/3/14) Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick was not in the team's starting lineup Thursday, according to MLB.com.
Ludwick was hit on the wrist during the fourth inning Wednesday, but his absence from the lineup is not injury-related. Chris Heisey got the start in Ludwick's place. Manager Bryan Price said Ludwick's wrist is a "non-issue." "We're just trying to keep some of these other guys fresh," Price said.
|Ryan Ludwick says it 'feels good to be strong again' |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/17/14) Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick finally feels at 100 percent after missing most of last season because of a shoulder injury, which required in-season surgery.
"I got cleared to lift upper-body weights I think it was Nov. 6," he said, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. "It feels good to be strong again.
"The thing a lot of people don't understand when you come off surgery and you rehab for four months, you're not as strong as you're going to be the following year. I had surgeries. You're never back to feeling really good until about a year post-op. I guess one of the positive things is I got a lot of rest. I didn't need any motivation this offseason."
|Ryan Ludwick gives it his best shot |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(10/1/13) Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick recorded three hits, including two doubles, as Cincinnati dropped the National League wild card playoff game at Pittsburgh Tuesday.
Ludwick was one of the hitting stars for the Reds in a 6-2 loss. He went 3 for 4 with two doubles in the game.
The 35-year-old hit just .240 for the Reds this season as he managed just 38 games as he spent most of the year on the disabled list. He homered twice with 12 RBI on the regular season.
|The Reds bought into Ryan Ludwick's 26-homer resurgence in 2012, inking him to a two-year deal last offseason. He rewarded their faith by dislocating his right shoulder on opening day -- an injury that required surgery and 4 1/2 months of rehabilitation. Though he returned in mid-August, his .326 slugging percentage shows he wasn't all the way back, as is typical for a power hitter coming off shoulder surgery. The question is, at age 35, does he have enough time to get back where he needs to be? With the Reds committed to him for another season, you have to think he'll get his shot, and as productive as he was down the stretch in 2012, you wouldn't want to ignore him in NL-only leagues. But unless he shows dramatic improvement in spring training, Ludwick is no more than a desperation pick for help in the power categories.
