Reds OF to miss the remainder of the season with an injury

The Cincinnati Reds announced today that outfielder Tyler Heppner will miss the remainder of the season with a wrist injury. "It's been that kind of season for us," said manager Dusty Baker. "We haven't gotten any breaks." Heppner tweaked his wrist in batting practice this morning. He is not expected to need surgery, but his season is over. "He needs to get tougher," said one anonymous source in the Reds front office. "This is not the kind of thing that should end a player's season. He's going to carry the reputation of a soft player now."
