Reds' Brandon Finnegan placed on disabled list

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Reds placed starting pitcher Brandon Finnegan on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Tuesday, with an injured left shoulder.

Finnegan left Monday's game in St. Louis in the fourth inning after experiencing discomfort in his first game back for the Reds since April 15.

"It's definitely heartbreaking," said Finnegan. "I was just so excited to be back and be with the guys and try to get some innings, but it kind of back-fired for sure."

Finnegan has started four games this season after posting a 3.98 ERA in 2016 – his first full season as a starting pitcher in the Major Leagues.

Zack Cozart is expected to return off the 10-day disabled list on Thursday or Friday for the Reds, Bryan Price told Fox19 NOW and other media. Cozart has been out ten days straight with a quad injury.
