    Dietrich was removed from Wednesday's game against the Cubs after getting hit by a pitch on the knee, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Impact

    Dietrich was originally able to stay in the game after getting checked out by trainers, though he was replaced by a pinch runner (Phillip Ervin) after the next out. Per Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer, the outfielder believes his injury is nothing more than a day-to-day issue. Look for his status for Thursday's series opener against the Cardinals to clear up after he's further evaluated.

    Dietrich went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 17-9 win over the Rockies.

    Impact

    While pinch hitting for pitcher Tanner Roark in the top of the sixth inning, Dietrich gave the Reds an 8-7 lead with his 19th long ball of the season. The home run was only Dietrich's second extra-base hit since June 22, with the 29-year-old's role having also been scaled back considerably during that stretch. Now that Scooter Gennett is back in action, Dietrich may only see a handful of starts per week, making him a tough player to roster outside of NL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

    News

    Dietrich is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Impact

    Dietrich will head to the bench for the fourth time in five games with a lefty (Jon Lester) on the mound. Even when the Reds oppose right-handed starting pitchers, Dietrich looks set to see his opportunities diminish now that top second baseman Scooter Gennett is back from the injured list.

    News

    Dietrich is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs.

    Impact

    It's not particularly notable that Dietrich is being held out against Cubs lefty Cole Hamels given that he has taken just 21 at-bats against southpaws this season, but it is worth mentioning that the Reds activated Scooter Gennett from the injured list Friday, which introduces another obstacle between Dietrich and regular playing time at second base moving forward.
