CINCINNATI - Ryan Ludwick has been placed on the 15-day DL after undergoing shoulder surgery Wednesday morning to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
Doctors and team officials have not released how long Ludwick might be sidelined.
Utility outfielder Chris Heisey will replace Ludwick in left field and will bat second in the lineup, with 2nd baseman Brandon Phillips moving down to the clean-up spot that was vacated by Ludwick's injury.
Ludwick suffered the injury on a head-first slide into third base during the 3rd inning of the Reds Opening Day game.
The Reds called up outfielder Derrick Robinson from AAA Louisville to replace Ludwick on the roster. When Robinson plays, he will be making his Major League debut.
Robinson has a career .255 batting average with 13 home runs and 232 RBIs in the minors. He also has a bit of speed, averaging 45 stolen bases in 7 minor league seasons.
The Reds take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Opening Night with first pitch at 7:10 p.m. The team is looking to bounce back from an anemic offensive performance in a 3-1, 13 inning loss on Opening Day.
