CINCINNATI — Shoulder problems landed outfielder Chris Dickerson and fifth starter Micah Owings on the 15-day disabled list, two more blows to a Cincinnati Reds team fading from contention.
The Reds put Dickerson on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a bruised right shoulder, suffered when he tried to make a diving catch during a a 5-2 loss in Chicago on Sunday. It was Cincinnati's sixth straight loss. Dickerson is batting .259 with two homers.
Owings left the game with a stiff shoulder. The right-hander is 6-11 and is one of the Reds' top pinch hitters, batting .229 with three homers.
The Reds recalled infielder Drew Sutton and right-hander Robert Manuel from Triple-A Louisville to fill their spots. Sutton was 1 for 8 with two RBIs in previous stints with Cincinnati. Manuel had no record in three appearances.
