In the latest baseball news, the Cincinnati Reds’ Mike Moustakas is placed on the 10 day injured list due to a right heel contusion. This announcement is made just before the final game of the Cincinnati Reds’ four-game series versus the San Francisco Giants. The injury list date is retroactive to Wednesday.
For those who are keeping track of rosters for their sportsbook pay per head, the Reds are pulling infielder Max Schrock from the Triple-A Louisville and will replace Moustakas to complete the 26-player roster. The team earlier had hoped that Moustakas would be able to recover quickly and return to the games, but the injury is worse than what they expected.
Moustakas was injured since their game last week in Colorado. He has not been playing for the last 6 games. If you want to know how to be a bookie, then take note that players of this caliber who get injured can affect the sports betting lines. Especially those of the games players miss, and their first couple of games back from injury. With baseball, this is especially true for pitchers, particularly starting pitchers. If a starting pitcher gets injured, you should be going over your lines to see if you need to adjust anything in your sportsbook.
Moustakas, 32 years old, is batting .241 and has 4 home runs, and 13 RBIs this season. This is his second season with the Reds. He has hoped that he will be able to return to the field earlier, and has been working hard on getting back to being ready. He has, in fact, made himself ready and has played in a few games while injured. However, since the injury is worse than initially thought of, he will really need to take the time to recover and get into proper condition.
