Published April 18, 2006
CINCINNATI - Ken Griffey went on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in a tendon behind his right knee.
The Reds centerfielder missed his fifth straight game, getting an MRI exam instead that revealed the injury. The 36-year-old wasn't available in the clubhouse after he was placed on the disabled list.
"It's as much a precautionary thing," GM Wayne Krivsky said. "It's not anything serious. According to the doctor, he could be playing in a day or two, but we'd rather be safe at this time of year."
The Reds are expected to activate C Jason LaRue before today's game.
