Bruce on the bereavement list

The Reds announced Tuesday afternoon that right fielder Jay Bruce was placed on the bereavement list. RHP Curtis Partch was recalled from Triple-A Louisville to take Bruce’s spot on the 25-man roster.

Bruce is allowed to be away from the club for a minimum of three days to a maximum of seven days.

This is Partch’s fifth call-up to the Reds this season. He has only appeared in five games over those call-ups and allowed no runs, two hits and seven walks.

Bruce is batting .215/.300/.379 with 10 home runs and 42 RBIs in 87 games this season.


Our prayers go out to Jay and his family.

It is past time for Walt to trade for left fielder with a bat. Do SOMETHING!
