Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo was diagnosed with a sprained right thumb in early July and had to be placed on the disabled list.

The Reds, as a franchise, have enjoyed quite a breakout season. Usually an afterthought by mid-June, they currently hold a half-game lead in the National League Central over the heavily favored Cardinals.
