Schumaker not cleared to play
Reds OF/2B Skip Schumaker thought he’d be back on the field by now vs. the Yankees. Schumaker was eligible for activation from the seven-day concussion disabled list on Friday, but was not yet cleared to play because he did not pass the required tests.
The concussion symptoms still persist and Schumaker can’t shake them.
“I thought I’d be activated already. It’s so frustrating that I’m not,” Schumaker said on Friday. “I’m hoping every day that [the symptoms] will go away and they haven’t yet. I thought the All-Star break would have been fine and that I’d be back and ready. I did the test [Thursday] before we left and it didn’t go as planned.”
On July 10, Schumaker slammed hard into the right-field wall trying to make a leaping catch vs. the Cubs. He hoped to take another test on Friday evening before the game.
