Insight: Ludwick has been on the disabled list since tearing his right shoulder on Opening Day. "I feel good," Ludwick said.

It’s going to a progress. It’s obviously going to be a longer rehab assignment. We’ll see how he plays out."
 
7/4/2013 12:22:00 PM

Insight: Ludwick will be placed on the DL and Chris Heisey will slide into a starting role. Heisey had 18 homers in just 279 at-bats in 2011, but slipped last season. This could be a big opportunity for him and if he starts out well fantasy owners should quickly add him to their roster.

Description: Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick suffered a dislocated right shoulder and will have an MRI done on Tuesday to determine how bad the damage.
Insight: Ludwick will likely be placed on the DL and Chris Heisey will slide into a starting role. Heisey was close to a 20-20 guy in 2011, in just 279 at-bats, but slipped backward last season. This could be a big opportunity for him and if he starts out well fantasy owners should quickly add him to their roster.

Description: The injury Ryan Ludwick suffered Monday was actually a dislocated right shoulder. SOURCE: C. Trent Rosecrans, Cincinnati Enquirer
Insight: Ouch. That should keep Ludwick on the shelf for a while. Chris Heisey will slide into a starting role now that Ludwick appears to be headed for the DL. Keep in mind that Jacoby Ellsbury missed three months with a similar injury last season.
