Scooter is more valuable to Reds than Phillips?

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — The Cincinnati Reds' All-Star second baseman Scooter Gennett is expected to be out for 2-3 months after he suffered a groin injury during a training game Friday, according to a tweet from the Reds.

The injury came while Gennett went to field a grounder hit by the Milwakuee Brewers' Yasmani Grandal.

According to The Associated Press, Gennett slid to make the stop and threw to pitcher Robert Stephenson covering first for the out. Gennett went to his knees and was helped off by Reds head athletic trainer Steve Baumann and manager David Bell.

"I don't know exactly if it was when he fell or when he made the throw," Bell said. "He felt something in his groin."

Gennett made his first All-Star team last season, hitting .310 with 23 homers and 92 RBIs.
