Schumaker dislocates shoulder
More bad news for the Reds. Utility player Skip Schumaker suffered a dislocated left shoulder during Friday’s game vs. the Royals. As the left fielder, Schumaker was diving for a ball in the seventh inning and did not get up. He said his glove caught on the grass and got stuck as his body kept moving.
Schumaker was relieved the injury test results weren’t worse.
“Hopefully I will rehab it and be out a month or so, maybe less, and go from there,” Schumaker said. “It is a pretty clean dislocation. The MRI was a positive thing. It wasn’t like the Ludwick situation, which was my fear. We’ll just rehab it and see where it goes.”
Trainer Paul Lessard was able to pop Schumaker’s shoulder back into place right after he came off of the field to give him so relief from the pain.
