Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Castellanos has been placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a right wrist microfracture injury.

The move is retroactive to Tuesday.

The CT scan Wednesday revealed the microfracture after initial X-rays were negative.

Castellanos played in Cincinnati's 15-11 loss to the New York Mets on Monday, entering the game as a defensive replacement prior to the top of the 11th inning.

"In some ways surprised, in some ways not," Reds manager David Bell said of Friday's move. "And I only say that because when you get hit with a pitch in that part of the hand, a lot of it is based on the symptoms and the tolerance, and the healing process.

"But I did hear a potential bone bruise from one of the exams he had, and every now and then, that could be just slightly more than that. I'm very hopeful, staying positive, and every game we miss with any of our players, including Nick, is too many. But (I'm) hopeful that it'll continue to heal quickly."

Castellanos entered Friday's play batting .329, which was tied for second in the National League.

Castellanos injured the wrist after he was hit by an Adrian Houser fastball on July 16 in an 11-6 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Also, Reds placed lefty reliever Amir Garrett on paternity leave and recalled infielder Alejo Lopez and starting pitcher Vladimir Gutierrez from Triple-A Louisville. Right-handed pitcher Jose De Leon was released off the 40-man roster Friday.
