CINCINNATI - Reds outfielder Jay Bruce went on the bereavement list Tuesday before the second game of a series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The team did not provide details to honour Bruce's privacy. Bruce is eligible to rejoin the team Friday in Miami.

The Reds lost nine of their first 10 games since the All-Star break. Their offence has struggled with first baseman Joey Votto and second baseman Brandon Phillips on the disabled list.

Votto has a strained muscle above his left knee and is out indefinitely. Phillips is recovering from a torn ligament in his left thumb that is expected to sideline him until the end of August. Bruce is batting .215 with 10 homers and 42 RBIs.

The Reds called up reliever Curtis Partch for his fifth stint with Cincinnati.
