The Reds have two starters hurt, but their depth has them with more than adequate replacements, even though Chris Heisey is off to a slow start. Which injury hurts more: Ryan Ludwick's or Ryan Hanigan's?
I think it's a bit too early to tell, with Hanigan not even being out a week yet, but right now I'd probably still say Ludwick. Chris Heisey has been mostly abysmal in LF, and Dusty refuses to give Xavier Paul more than one game here and there. Don't laugh, Xavier Paul has been excellent in Cincinnati so far. Devin Mesoraco is the guy now that Hanigan's gone, and has already provided a spark into the lineup that we didn't previously see. The only issue here is how well Hanigan handled pitchers and threw out runners, but I don't anticipate a huge dropoff here once Devin gets his bearings as a starter a bit more.
