48-71 Cincinnati Reds They have been out of the race for the playoffs since April, when they started with that ugly 3-22 record.

He improvised somewhat, but was never in danger of actually making the postseason.

A large part of the reason are clearly decisions made by roster construction and ownership, but injuries and injuries that have affected the team’s performance as well.

Two of the biggest offensive stars are currently injured: the first baseman joy vote and catcher Tyler Stephenson,

They’ve already had surgery, and the Reds’ medical director, Dr. Timothy Kremchek, showed a photo of the two stars shaking a catapult made by their staff.

Voto’s injury was more serious than expected

On August 19, the Reds placed Voto on a 60-day injured list with a left rotator cuff tear.

He had surgery on Friday to repair his shoulder and biceps.

He is expected to return for spring training in 2023.

Stephenson, on the other hand, underwent surgery in the first week of August to repair his broken right clavicle.

It was a steady process.

He, like Voto, is done for the season but is also expected to make a full recovery for 2023 spring training.

Stephenson was having a decent season at the plate, with .319 24 runs, six home runs, 35 RBI, a steal, and a .854 OPS.

Voto, on the other hand, struggled with COVID-19 early in the season and throughout the year with a shoulder injury.

He hit .205 with 31 runs, 11 homers, 41 RBI and a .689 OPS.

If he makes a full recovery next year, it is expected that he will give better numbers despite having an average supporting cast.
