NEW YORK (AP) — With Jay Bruce on his way back to Cincinnati to have his broken wrist examined, the Reds have recalled infielder Adam Rosales from Triple-A Louisville to fill the roster spot.

Bruce, placed on the 15-day disabled list, was expected to be examined Sunday by Reds medical director Timothy Kremchek before the team gives a timetable for his return.

Chris Dickerson took Bruce’s spot in right field in the series finale against the Mets.

Bruce, who leads the Reds with 18 homers despite hitting only .207, was injured trying to make a sliding catch on David Wright’s liner in the first inning of a 4-0 loss to the Mets on Saturday night.

Rosales hit .197 with two homers and 13 RBIs in 42 games for Cincinnati before he was demoted on June 27.
