The Reds announced Senzel sustained a right ankle sprain and he will be in a boot for 7-to-14 days.

Sources told MLB Network Senzel's X-ray was negative. He had an MRI on Tuesday. The 23-year-old primarily plays third base but was competing for a spot in center field before being reassigned to minor league camp.

He was slated to start the season at Triple-A Louisville. Senzel is the No. 6 prospect in baseball, according to MLB Pipeline.

He hit .308 in 12 games during spring training. Senzel hit .310 with six home runs and 25 RBIs in 44 games at the Triple-A level in 2018.
