Latest Update Jay Bruce is not in the Reds lineup on Wednesday. Wed Sep, 17, 03:43 PM
A great athlete with excellent size and mobility, he hits the ball with huge power. Has the instincts and talent to be a star in all aspects of the game.
Flaws: : Strikes out too much and forces things at the plate sometimes. Also, his outfield defense is still a work in progress. Isn't much of a base-stealer.
Bruce gets the day off so the Reds can take a look at outfielders Yorman Rodriguez and Donald Lutz. This will likely be a regular occurrence over the rest of the season.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Bruce is getting a routine day off as manager Bryan Price is doing with a number of the regulars. Bruce will take a seat in favor of Yorman Rodriguez on Monday.Analyst: Howard Bender
This has just not been the season for Jay Bruce. He is batting just .214 with 16 home runs on the season and has bounced from the outfield to 1st base with the injury to Joey Votto. He's getting the day off.Analyst: Drew Phelps
Bruce has had a terrible season, slashing .216/.288/.375 with 16 home runs and 60 RBI through 440 at-bats, but has now smacked two home runs with five RBI in five September games. At this point in the year it is far too late to right the ship, but maybe his recent production is a sign of how his season with end, which his the least he can do for his fantasy owners.
