Reds OF TJ Friedl (fractured thumb) out 4 to 5 weeks

TJ Friedl

Cincinnati Reds outfielder TJ Friedl was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a fractured left thumb.

Reds manager David Bell said Friedl is expected to miss four to five weeks. Friedl just returned from a broken right wrist sustained during spring training.

“He’s such a great teammate. He worked hard to get back, just getting into playing,” Bell told reporters prior to Monday’s road game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. “Nothing we can do about it. He’s gonna be fine.”

The severity of the injury was detected Monday during tests in Phoenix.

Friedl, 28, was playing in just his sixth game of the season on Sunday when the first pitch of the game from San Francisco Giants left-hander Kyle Harrison hit Friedl on the thumb.

Friedl stayed in the game to run the bases and score before departing.

Friedl is batting .182 in 22 at-bats with two steals and two RBIs. In 2023, he batted .279 with 18 homers, 66 RBIs and 27 steals in 138 games.

Cincinnati recalled outfielder Jacob Hurtubise from Triple-A Louisville. The 26-year-old Army graduate put his military commitment on hold in 2020 to pursue a baseball career.

This season, Hurtubise is batting .241 in nine games over three minor league stops this season. He was 2-for-8 at Louisville.
