Bruce to miss a month
The Reds announced that right fielder Jay Bruce will likely miss the next month after he had arthroscopic surgery on Monday to repair torn meniscus cartilage in his left knee.
Dr. Tim Kremchek, the Reds’ medical director performed the operation.
“He said everything went well,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. “It went as expected and the surgery was routine.”
Bruce will be placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, but the corresponding roster move was not revealed.
In 30 games this season, Bruce is batting .216 with three home runs, 14 RBIs and a .352 on-base percentage. The exact detail about how Bruce was injured remain murky.
“I think it’s something he’s had for a while. It inflamed on him,” Jocketty said. “I’m sure he did it playing but we don’t know when.”
