On Wednesday night Cincinnati Reds prospect Edwin Arroyo was picked off of first base. On the dive back to the bag he appeared to tweak his shoulder. When the next half-inning began he was replaced in the field.

Today we learned that the Reds #3 prospect will be getting an MRI on his shoulder. Charlie Goldsmith of the Cincinnati Enquirer notes that manager David Bell said that Arroyo would be getting an MRI on the left shoulder “to be sure”. Bell noted after the game on Wednesday that he “thinks he’s fine”. Hopefully he’s correct.

Arroyo, who is on the roster for the Spring Breakout game tonight, likely won’t play given that they are sending him for an MRI on his shoulder.

Michael Trautwein is back

After being sent back to minor league camp earlier in spring training, the Reds have brought Michael Trautwein back to big league camp in an official capacity. Catcher Austin Wynns is dealing with a shoulder issue himself and that leaves the big league club in need of another catcher. That’s opened up the opportunity to Trautwein to head back to the big league side of spring training as a non-roster invitee. In six games he’s hit .250/.250/.375 over eight at-bats. Tonight he’s playing in the Spring Breakout game for the Reds.

    For sure. I’m looking forward to seeing him play this year.

    Spring Breakout results:
    Cam Collier hit a HR to Left Center. I would guess about 190. His next two AB he K’d.

    Carlos Sanchez played SS and was very impressive.

    Julien Aguiar started and gave up 1 run in 3 IP. Hit hard in the first, even the outs. But settled down.

    Rhett Lowder faced 7 batters and threw 7 first pitch strikes. All 7 were also down in the count 1 ball and 2 strikes.

    Hunter Parks struggled with control in the 6th but had hitters off balance. 4 or 5 check swings for called strikes.

    Reds win 4-1
