There once was optimism that Matt McLain would be ready to help the Cincinnati Reds down the stretch after recovering from the oblique injury that sent him to the shelf on August 27th. Today, even, had been earmarked for his return.
That won’t happen, nor will it at any further point in this 2023 season. As The Enquirer’s Charlie Goldsmith relayed, McLain aggravated his oblique injury and will be sidelined for the remainder of this season.
Matt McLain re-aggrevated his oblique (grade two strain) on his rehab assignment. He’s out for the regular season.
