News: Schumaker (shoulder) is scheduled to travel to Arizona on Thursday to begin playing in extended spring games, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. Impact: Once he's had enough at-bats and defensive reps in extended spring, Schumaker will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville. We should see him back with the Reds as a utility player some time in May.(RotoWire, )

News: Schumaker (shoulder) is getting closer to beginning a rehab assignment, but the team is working on building his strength first. "I think he's over the pain hurdle," manager Bryan Price said on Monday. "When you have an injury like that, where it really hurts him is his ability to maintain his strength because he is so limited in what he can do with his shoulder. We're really focusing on increasing his strength and once he gets to that place, we'll get him back out into games. He's chomping at the bit to play. We're going to be a little bit conservative just to make sure we can get Skip back as close to 100 percent as we can get him this year." Impact: When Schumaker eventually returns, he'll be a utility player, capable of subbing in at second base or outfield.(RotoWire, )

News: Schumaker (shoulder) has joined the Reds on their current road trip but isn't yet ready for game activity. Impact: Schumaker is still projected for a mid-May return. "He's not quite ready to play in games yet, he's still doing a lot of work on getting his shoulder at full strength and getting all the soreness out," manager Bryan Price said. "He's getting better every day. He went from hitting off the tee to getting in the cages and swinging the bat. He's able to take groundballs, he's going [through] all of his throwing stuff, his running. So it's a real positive step."(RotoWire, )

News: Schumaker (shoulder) was able to do some throwing and hitting off a tee Monday, something he wasn't able to do earlier during his DL stint. "We're optimistic that, in relatively short order, he'll be able to get into game action," Reds manager Bryan Price said. Impact: Previously, he had discomfort in his left (non-throwing) shoulder when trying to play catch. "That left arm has to come up. It has to establish height and closure to stabilize and really allow him to extend and throw through the ball," Price said. "It's a very important piece of the throwing mechanics, even though he's a right-handed thrower. That used to hinder him."(RotoWire, )
