According to Mark Sheldon of, Reds utility man Skip Schumaker said this morning that he has a dislocated left shoulder and expects to miss around a month of action.

Schumaker suffered the injury while attempting to make a diving catch in the seventh inning yesterday. Reds trainer Paul Lessard was able to pop his shoulder back into place after he left the field. Schumaker was worried that he would be facing a similar situation as new teammate Ryan Ludwick, who tore the labrum in his shoulder on Opening Day last year and ended up missing four months, so the diagnosis is pretty good news under the circumstances.

The owner a .285/.344/.372 batting line in the majors, Schumaker signed a two-year, $5 million deal with the Reds over the winter.

    hey skip you are not with the cardinals anymore so you can stop diving after the ball on every play to make sports center.another ex-card collecting a paycheck from the reds for doing nothing. will somebody please tell jocketty that he does not work for them anymore and they are not the same players they were 10 years ago when he was them in St. Louis. can’t wait until 5 years from now when he signs a 45 year old pujols to 2 year 20 million dollar retirement contract. aside from the good 3 months ludwick gave the reds in 2012 his over paid signings of ex-cardinals have not worked out. he then could not resist over paying him for that late summer run and how has that worked out for the reds? injured most of last year and he is really tearing up this spring isn’t he?
