CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday put shortstop Alex Gonzalez on the bereavement list and replaced him with infielder Mark Bellhorn.
Bellhorn went to Triple-A Louisville after being designated for assignment by the Reds after Sunday's game. He rejoined the Reds in Chicago for the second game Wednesday night of a three-game series.
Gonzalez is staying at home with his ill 10-month-old son, the third time he has been on the bereavement list this season. The Reds said there was no timetable for his return.
Bellhorn, 32, batted .167 with no home runs during his earlier stint with the Reds.
The Reds also moved veteran infielder Juan Castro, who recently had season-ending elbow surgery, to the 60-day disabled list.
