CINCINNATI -- Reds third baseman Jack Hannahan, who has not played this season after having right shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum last October, suffered his second setback recently. Hannahan has been shut down from throwing and hitting.
"It's been a long and frustrating process," Hannahan said on Saturday.
Hannahan was diagnosed with inflammation inside a capsule of his shoulder. It bothered him to hit and after throwing.
"I would throw and [the shoulder] just wouldn't bounce back," he said. "As far as the timetable, I have no clue. Once these guys get back [from next week's road trip], I should start up a throwing program and get back out there as soon as I can."
