Cincinnati Reds reliever Art Warren, who was signed to Louisville on Sept. 10 and landed on the minor league disabled list without appearing in a game due to an elbow injury, recently underwent surgery to repair his ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), Reds coach David Bell told reporters on Saturday.
“Art Warren recently had UCL repaired, not rebuilt, repaired,” Bell said. “I don’t know the extent of the difference between the two. There is a distinction there.”

Bell said it wasn’t Tommy John’s surgery.
Warren has thrown 36 innings this season with 40 strikeouts and a 6.50 ERA.
Bell said he doesn’t yet have a timeline for Warren’s recovery.
Nick Senzel equipped with a cast, a scooter
Outfielder Nick Senzel was fitted with new equipment on Saturday to help with the broken toe he suffered on Tuesday when he collided with the center field wall.
Senzel’s foot is now in a cast and he uses a scooter to support his foot so he can still move around.
Bell reiterated on Saturday that Senzel did not need surgery.
“He’s going to be in this (cast) for 6-8 weeks,” Bell said. “It was a bad break. There’s nothing he can’t recover from but it’s going to be important…having the scooter is great to be able to move around and stay as active as possible. It’s long enough to be embarrassed a bit but he’ll have plenty of time, we were just talking about when he’s back and able to get back to training and hitting, and he’ll be fine for spring training.”
