Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Castellanos is out of the lineup for Tuesday’s game against the visiting New York Mets.
A sore right wrist will keep Castellanos on the bench for a fourth straight game. The All-Star, who flied out as a pinch-hitter in Monday’s 15-11 loss to the Mets, hasn’t started since leaving Friday’s 11-6 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers after being hit by a pitch.
Aristides Aquino will start in right field and bat cleanup on Tuesday.
Castellanos, 29, was hitting .329 entering Tuesday’s play, tying him for the major-league lead with Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley. In 86 games this season, Castellanos has 18 home runs and a team-leading 59 RBIs.
