Cincinnati Reds top prospect and Louisville Bats IF Nick Senzel will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right index-finger.
Senzel left the game in the first inning of Louisville's series opener against the Norfolk Tides.
Before the injury, Senzel had an 11-game hitting streak, where he hit .440 (22-for-50) since June 9th. He hit .310 with power in 44 games for Louisville this season. The average is 5th in the international league.
The injury was confirmed in an official statement from the Louisville Bats.
