Castellanos (wrist) could resume baseball activities Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Castellanos landed on the 10-day injured list Friday due to a microfracture in his right wrist, but he progressed well this weekend. The 29-year-old is eligible to return as soon as July 30, but a better idea of his recovery timetable could be revealed once he resumes activities.
Castellanos (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday.
Castellanos suffered a microfracture in his right wrist a full week prior to the move. The Reds held off on making the decision for quite a while but ultimately decided to shut him down for at least one more week. The move was backdated three days, so he'll be eligible to return as soon as July 30, though it's unclear whether he'll be able to do so. Alejo Lopez was recalled in a corresponding move.
Castellanos (wrist) still has a chance to avoid the injured list, but the Reds are expected to make the decision later in the day Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Castellanos is dealing with a microfracture in his right wrist, an injury he suffered after getting hit by a pitch in the first game after the All-Star break. Previous reports indicated he may have to miss multiple weeks, but the Reds evidently believe there's at least some chance he won't. They're leaving open the possibility that his wrist could feel significantly better soon, but if it doesn't, he'll hit the injured list.
Castellanos (wrist) could be sidelined for a couple of weeks, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Castellanos underwent a CT scan recently that revealed a right wrist microfracture, and he's unable to swing a bat for now. It appears likely that the 29-year-old will head to the injured list, and his return timetable depends on when he's able to resume baseball activities. Aristides Aquino and Shogo Akiyama would likely be in line for increased work if Castellanos heads to the 10-day IL.

The result of Wednesday's CT scan casts doubt on Castellanos' ability to return to the lineup within the next few days. Further, a trip to the injured list now seems possible for the 29-year-old slugger. Additional details about Castellanos' condition should become available within the next couple days. If he does land on the IL, Aristides Aquino and Shogo Akiyama will take on more substantial roles in Cincinnati's outfield.
Castellanos (wrist) remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets.
Castellanos served as a pinch hitter in Monday's series opener against the Mets, but he'll be held out of the lineup for a fifth consecutive game due to a right wrist injury that he sustained Friday against the Brewers. The 29-year-old is still considered day-to-day, and it's not yet clear whether he could be available off the bench once again. Aristides Aquino will start in right field and bat seventh.
Castellanos (wrist) remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.
Castellanos' usage as a pinch-hitter in Monday's 15-11 loss offered some hope that he might be able to return to a starting role in right field Tuesday, but he'll ultimately stick on the bench for a fourth straight game with the right wrist injury. The Reds likely would have resisted using Castellanos on Monday if the team was truly worried about him landing on the injured list, so he can be considered day-to-day. Aristides Aquino picks up a start in Castellanos' stead.

Castellanos hasn't played since leaving Friday's game against the Brewers after a pitch hit his right wrist. He wasn't even available off the bench Sunday, but the Reds don't seem too concerned about any long-term injury for the slugger, whose X-rays came back negative. He's reportedly feeling better and could be made available off the bench Monday, according to Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer. Tyler Naquin will again slide to right field in his absence, with Shogo Akiyama getting a start in center.

Cincinnati will open a three-game series with the Mets on Monday, and the team should provide an update on Castellanos prior to the 7:10 p.m. ET opening pitch.
