Skip Schumaker had hoped that the All-Star break would provide enough time to recover from a July 10 concussion, but the Reds utility man remains out of the lineup with continued symptoms.
Schumaker, who suffered the concussion when he crashed into the outfield wall trying to make a catch, told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com:
I thought I’d be activated already. It’s so frustrating that I’m not. I’m hoping every day that [the symptoms] will go away and they haven’t yet. I thought the All-Star break would have been fine and that I’d be back and ready. I did the test [Thursday] before we left and it didn’t go as planned.
Brain injuries are impossible to predict, unfortunately. Schumaker would be in line for increased playing time with both Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips sidelined, but instead he’ll remain on the seven-day concussion disabled list.
