The Cubs placed infielder David Bote on the 10-day injured list with a dislocated left shoulder. Bote got hurt sliding into second base on Saturday.
Bote had an MRI on Sunday, and there is no timeline for his return.
“I think it was a little less damaging than we thought,” manager David Ross said. “I think we got the best news we could possibly get. There were no fractures or nothing in there that was crazy off.”
Infielder Sergio Alcántara was promoted from Triple-A Iowa, and right-hander Tyson Miller was designated for assignment. The 24-year-old Alcántara pinch-hit in the sixth and popped out to second.
Reds: 1B Joey Votto (left thumb) is progressing and Bell estimated he is about a week away from returning. … LHP Wade Miley (left foot) threw a side session Saturday and reported no ill effects on Sunday. He’s expected to be activated Monday to start against Philadelphia.
Cubs: Ross said Rizzo was feeling better and hit off the tee on Saturday. Ross is hopeful he’ll be able to return soon and avoid a stint on the 10-day IL. … OFs Jake Marisnick (right hamstring) and Jason Heyward (left hamstring) each worked out before the game. Ross believes both are close to returning.
Reds: Miley (4-4, 3.50 ERA) starts the opener of a three-game home series against the Phillies. RHP Vince Velasquez (2-0, 2.95 ERA) goes for Philadelphia.
Cubs: RHP Trevor Williams (3-2, 5.36 ERA) was slated to start Monday against San Diego, but he is unavailable after he had an appendectomy Sunday morning. There was no word on who would replace him against the visiting Padres.
