Cincinnati Reds rightfielder Nick Castellanos has been mostly a spectator since he was hit on the right wrist by a pitch in Friday’s loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

It looks like Castellanos will be sidelined for a little longer.

according to Jon Morosic of MLB Network, Castellanos could miss “a few weeks” of action due to a microfracture of the right wrist. The details about the injury are not surprising. Mark Sheldon noted on the league’s website that Castellanos revealed he suffered the microfracture after Wednesday’s home loss to the New York Mets.

“So I had a CAT scan today. I have a microfracture in my wrist that I’m dealing with,” said the 2021 All-Star. “So yeah, I need to get it rested. I’m going to take a few days to see where I stand.”

Interestingly, Castellanos had only one at bat during the series against the Mets, which came in the bottom of the 11th inning of Monday’s loss. He later said he was “probably 50%” through the series.

According to ESPN stats, Castellanos is second in all of MLB with a .329 average and first with 29 doubles. He also contributed 18 home runs and 59 RBI in 86 games this season.

At the start of Thursday’s action, the Reds were 49-47 and 6.5 games behind first-place Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central standings.
