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.
