Injury Scout - CB Bucknor's Mysterious Absence

CB Bucknor left Monday night's assignment in Cincinnati for unknown reasons just one inning early.

Heading into bottom of the 8th inning of the Braves-Reds game, the Atlanta broadcast noticed an umpire was missing from the field of play, identifying the absent arbiter as CB Bucknor. No reason was given for Bucknor's absence, though he was not part of Tuesday's umpiring lineup in Cincinnati, either.

With 1B Umpire Bucknor out of commission, 2B Umpire Brian O'Nora slid over to first base, while 3B Umpire and crew chief Fieldin Culbreth remained at third and HP Umpire Chris Conroy continued behind the plate.

Minor League call-up umpire Chris Segal was called in to replace Bucknor for Tuesday night's game, serving as the second base umpire with Culbreth leap frogging the rotation to first base.
