Cleveland will be without designated hitter Franmil Reyes for at least five-to-seven weeks because of an internal oblique strain, according to The Athletic’s Zack Meisel:
Reyes was placed on the 10-day injured list before Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Twins. He left Saturday’s game with the injury, which Cleveland initially said was a strained left abdominal muscle.
The 25-year-old’s absence will be a massive blow to Cleveland’s offense. He leads the team in RBI (29), is second in home runs (11) and is batting .257 in 40 games.
Reyes and Jose Ramirez have powered much of Cleveland’s offense this season, propelling the team to second in the AL Central with a 24-19 record.
