As noted in a comment below, Jason LaRue will be having surgery:
Reds catcher Jason LaRue will have arthroscopic surgery to repair the torn medial meniscus in his right knee.
Reds medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek will perform the surgery tomorrow morning in Cincinnati.
LaRue is expected to miss 10-14 days. He has not been placed on the disabled list.
An MRI taken this afternoon revealed the injury.
I hope it’s just going to be a couple of weeks. We’ve seen the Reds medical team misdiagnose these things before.
I’m certainly disappointed that I won’t get to see Jason LaRue starting at catcher next week, but I’m no less excited about getting to attend Opening Day. It’s been a long, hard winter.
