Cincinnati Reds second baseman Matt McLain is recovering from shoulder surgery, the team said Wednesday.

McLain, 24, had a procedure Tuesday to repair his labrum and address cartilage damage in his left shoulder.

“An exact timeline is still TBD as it has a wide range of possibilities,” the team announced on social media. “We hope to have Matt back this season.”

He suffered the injury in a spring training workout last week.

Jonathan India, the 2021 National League Rookie of the Year, is among the candidates to take over for McLain.

McLain made his MLB debut in 2023 and batted .290 with 16 homers, 50 RBIs and 14 steals in 89 games.

Cincinnati drafted McLain in the first round (17th overall) in 2021 out of UCLA.
