CINCINNATI (AP) -Reds catcher David Ross jammed his right hand into second base while sliding for a double Wednesday night, and immediately left the game.
Ross led off the fourth inning against Milwaukee with a double into the left-field corner. He went in with a headfirst slide, scraping his right hand through the infield dirt and then jamming it into the base.
He quickly pulled his hand off the base and rolled onto his side in pain. A trainer examined the hand and wrist and walked off the field with him.
Javier Valentin, the Reds' backup catcher, took his place.
Ross has started 75 of 102 games, and is among the league's best at throwing out runners, nabbing 65 percent. He has struggled at the plate, batting .196 with 15 homers.
