Reds left fielder Ryan Ludwick will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, the team announced Tuesday. He will go on the 15-day disabled list and a corresponding move will be announced before Wednesday’s game with the Angels.

Ludwick suffered the shoulder injury in the third inning of Monday’s opener when he slid awkwardly into third base. He dislocated the shoulder and an MRI on Tuesday showed further damage. The team didn’t announce any sort of timetable for his return, but similar injuries in the past have required anywhere from four to six months of recovery. Jocketty said the team would not have a timetable until after the surgery is performed by team medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek.

“We’re not sure,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. “We won’t know the extent until he gets in there.”

Monday night, Ludwick alluded to Derek Jeter’s 2003 shoulder injury on Opening Day. That year Jeter suffered a dislocated shoulder and was placed on the disabled list, missing 36 games because of the injury. Jeter, though, didn’t require surgery.

Although the injury is to his right shoulder and Ludwick throws left-handed and bats right-handed, Will Carroll, lead injury writer for Bleacher Report, said the injury would have a much greater effect on his power production.

As for a return by the All-Star break, Carroll said that prognosis was “reasonable – tough, but reasonable.”
