Cincinnati Reds Place SP Brandon Finnegan (Shoulder) on Disabled List

What seemed to be a strained lat muscle for Brandon Finnegan, could sideline him for longer than anticipated. Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price announced the club placed the young lefty on the disabled list with a strained left trapezius muscle.

As a result of the injury, Finnegan won't be allowed to throw a baseball for two to three weeks, which could mean his timeline to even return to the mound in Cincinnati is at a month-plus. With the official move to the disabled list, Cincinnati promoted Tim Adleman.

While it's not yet known whether Adleman will serve as a long reliever or take Finnegan's place in the rotation, he did serve in Triple-A Louisville's rotation to begin the season. In his lone start, Adleman allowed just two runs and five hits with a 6/1 K/BB ratio over seven innings in a loss to Triple-A Toledo.

The 29-year-old made 13 starts for Cincinnati last season and pitched admirably for a rookie that made several starts in Great American Ballpark. On the year, Adleman posted a 4.00 ERA, though he also had a 1.68 HR/9. If he is named the started, he can safely be avoided in season-long leagues.

Across 10 innings this season, Finnegan allowed six hits, three earned runs and held a 13/6 K/BB ratio. Saturday's short appearance and injury inflated what were strong numbers to start the season.
