Bote grabbed his shoulder after the play at second base in the fourth inning. He was helped off the field and replaced by Patrick Wisdom at third base before the Reds batted in the top of the fifth.

The team said Bote is undergoing further evaluation. He finished 0-for-1 with a run scored.

Bote, who is 28, is batting .194 with five homers and 23 RBIs in 49 games.
