Farmer was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain Wednesday.
The severity of the issue is not yet clear, but Farmer could be set to miss the rest of the season unless the issue is particularly mild. Farmer had been filling in for Eugenio Suarez (hand), a job which now appears to fall to Alex Blandino.
Farmer is starting at third base in place of Eugenio Suarez on Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Suarez got hit on the left hand by a pitch Sunday night and is still waiting for the swelling to go down so that the team can take X-rays.
Farmer went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a 9-8 loss against the Pirates on Sunday.
Entering as a pinch hitter in the fourth inning, Farmer singled and then stayed in the game as part of a double switch. He homered in his next at-bat. Farmer is batting .253 with eight home runs, 25 RBI, 20 runs and four steals in 150 at-bats this season.
