CINCINNATI (AP) The Reds lost yet another starter to injury when Tim Adleman left after throwing a pitch in the fourth inning of a game against the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.
Adleman reached for his left side after a pitch to Chris Gimenez. A trainer and manager Bryan Price went out to talk to him, and he left the field with what was diagnosed as a strained oblique. The Indians had two runners aboard and led 2-0.
The Reds already have five starters on the disabled list: Jon Moscot, Raisel Iglesias, Homer Bailey, Anthony DeSclafani and Michael Lorenzen. Only two Reds starters have lasted seven innings this season, putting a strain on the major leagues' worst bullpen.
