News: Axelrod is likely done for the season, the Associated Press reports. Impact: This should come as no surprise after he left his last start with a strained right oblique, which often take a few weeks or more for pitchers to return from. Those in single-season leagues can feel comfortable dropping Axelrod at this point.(RotoWire, )

News: Axelrod strained his right oblique and came out of a game against the St. Louis Cardinals after only seven pitches on Monday night. Impact: The right-hander was making his fourth start for Cincinnati, which got him from the Chicago White Sox for cash on July 16. He went 1-2 in his first three starts for the Reds. Left-hander David Holmberg replaced Axelrod with a 2-2 count on Jon Jay and struck him out.(STATS, 2:40am)

News: Axelrod left Monday's start against the Cardinals with a strained right oblique, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Impact: Axelrod hasn't officially been ruled out from making his next scheduled start Saturday against the Brewers, but because oblique injuries often result in medium- to long-term absences for pitchers, his chances of taking the ball don't look especially promising. He was replaced in the first inning of Monday's start by David Holmberg, who would seem to be the Reds' top option to step into the rotation for Axelrod if he's indeed unavailable for his next turn.(RotoWire, )

News: Axelrod was pulled from Monday's start against the Cardinals in the first inning due to an undisclosed injury, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. Impact: Axelrod lasted just seven pitches and recorded one out before he left the mound. A report on Axelrod's condition should be relayed after the game, but his early removal is an ominous sign for what was shaping up to be a two-start week. Fortunately for the Reds, the September roster expansion should leave the team will plenty of arms available out of the bullpen to cover the remaining 8.2 innings of Monday's game.(RotoWire, )
