Reds 40-man roster predictions: Tejay Antone to 60-day IL, Henry Ramos added

Another Cincinnati Reds pitcher who'll be headed to the 60-day Injured List will be Tejay Antone. The right-hander suffered a setback during his rehab and will likely be out of action until closer to the All-Star break.

Antone injured his elbow shortly after the second-half of the 2021 season began. The Texas native underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career and spent all of last season on the 60-day IL.

Henry Ramos has played outstanding this spring. After an injury-riddled season playing for the KT Wiz of the KBO in 2022, Ramos signed a minor-league contract with the Reds during the offseason and received an invite to spring training.

Ramos compete for Team Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, but the 30-year-old barely saw the field. However, upon his return, the switch-hitting outfielder showcased his power by smacking a home run his first at-bats.

After the Cincinnati Reds released Chad Pinder and optioned the trio of Stuart Fairchild, Michael Siani, and Nick Solak to Triple-A, it would appear as though Henry Ramos has emerged as the team's fifth outfielder. Once added to the 40-man roster, Cincinnati will have the ability to option Ramos to the minor leagues if necessary.
