Suárez working to get his shoulder healed after pool mishap

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Eugenio Suárez was playing in a swimming pool with his children at home in Pinecrest, Florida, and decided to dive into the shallow half.

The Cincinnati Reds third baseman hit the bottom of the pool and wound up with a shoulder injury that has set him back in spring training and left his availability uncertain for opening day.

“I tried to dive in headfirst,” Suárez said. “My hands hit first first and then my shoulder felt like a pop.”

Suárez tore cartilage in his right shoulder and had surgery Jan. 28. For the start of spring training, Suárez was limited to conditioning work while his throwing shoulder healed.

Well, at least he wasn’t washing his truck…..

Eugenio Suárez may miss start of 2020 season after right shoulder surgery

The Cincinnati Reds announced third baseman Eugenio Suárez underwent surgery to remove loose cartilage in his right shoulder Monday.

Suárez told the club he injured his shoulder in a swimming pool at his home in Pinecrest, Florida, a little more than a week ago. He traveled to Cincinnati for an exam with Reds medical director Dr. Timothy Kremcheck and learned he needed surgery last Friday.

He will be in a sling for the next 3-5 days before beginning his rehab. The Reds said his physical activity will be limited at the beginning of spring training and he should be ready near the start of the regular season.

The Reds have options to fill third base if Suárez isn’t ready for Opening Day on March 26. Mike Moustakas, who signed a four-year, $64 million contract in December, has primarily played third base throughout his career.

So, how does one have a serious shoulder injury in a swimming pool?
