Skip Schumaker out a month after dislocating shoulder

The injuries keep piling up for Bryan Price's club with Skip Schumaker being the latest to succumb to the walking wounded list, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

On Saturday, it was announced that the veteran is expected to miss about a month of action after dislocating his left shoulder. The injury was sustained in Friday's game when Schumaker tried to make a diving play in the outfield.

"My glove stuck," he said. "My body kept going forward and it popped out. (Trainer Paul Lessard) came out and popped it back in."

Thankfully, the shoulder injury isn't anywhere near as severe as the on suffered by Ryan Ludwick on Opening Day last year. That ailment forced Ludwick out of action until mid-August.

"Dislocations, you never know what's going to happen," Schumaker said. "You obviously want to avoid surgery at all costs. I was hoping for the best, and I got good news. I'll rehab it and be out a month or so."
