Senzel, 23, is the No. 5 overall prospect in baseball, according to MLB Pipeline. He is hitting .296 with a home run in six games this season for Triple-A Louisville.

The former third baseman is transitioning to an outfield position. Senzel had a setback in the late spring when he sustained a right ankle sprain.

The Reds play the second game of a four-game series against the New York Mets at 7:10 p.m. Tuesday at Citi Field in Queens. The Giants come to town for a 7:10 p.m. game on Friday at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. That four-game series wraps up Monday.
