Jay Bruce extends homer streak to three games


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce homered for the third straight game Tuesday, in a 4-2 win over the Cubs.

Bruce opened the game with a two-run shot in the first inning, his only hit of the game. He finished 1 for 4 with two RBI and two strikeouts in the win.

Bruce started off slow, but now has six home runs since the start of June. He is hitting .233/.314/.736 with 10 home runs and 38 RBI in 73 games. 


Jay Bruce replaces injured Joey Votto at first base


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Reds first baseman Joey Votto is out of the Monday lineup against the Cubs. Jay Bruce has been moved to the spot.

Votto could be destined for the disabled list with a left quadriceps strain that has prevented him from playing the last two games. He has been struggling at the plate without a multi-game since June 21. He has just seven hits in his last 40 at-bats.


Jay Bruce ends hitless slump with game-winning HR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce collected three RBI, which included a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning, during a 4-2 win Sunday against the Brewers. He finished 1 for 4 with two runs.

Bruce's first RBI came on a fielder's choice in the first inning. His last two RBI came on his eighth home run, which was the first home run Milwaukee left-hander Will Smith gave up to a left-handed hitter this season.

Bruce entered play Sunday mired in a 0-for-21 slump in his previous six games. He homered Sunday for the first time in 14 games.


Jay Bruce drives in two with pair of doubles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce continues to find his swing, as he doubled twice in a 4-1 win over the Cubs Wednesday.

Bruce drove in two runs in the game, one with a first-inning double and another in the sixth inning. He finished the game 2 for 4, extending his hitting streak to six games.

Bruce is hitting .284 with four home runs, 10 doubles and 15 RBI in the month of June, raising his season line to .230/.324/.408. 


Jay Bruce smacks seventh home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce went 1 for 3 with a walk, a home run and three runs scored in his team's 11-1 rout of the Blue Jays Saturday.

Bruce scored in the first inning on a passed ball then added a solo home run in the third inning. He came home for the third time in the seventh inning on a home run by Devin Mesoraco. After homering in back-to-back games, Bruce owns a .219/.322/.388 line with seven home runs, 25 RBI and eight stolen bases in 196 at-bats.


Jay Bruce slowly coming around


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce, who had his meniscus repaired May 5, made about as quick of a return from knee surgery as you'll ever see, missing a little more than two weeks.

Of course, he's hit only .213 with a .628 OPS in 21 games since, leading some to wonder if he came back too soon.

For as reliable as he's been from season to season, though, his production during the season has always come in spurts. He had a 20-game stretch at the beginning of August last year in which he hit .192 with a .604 OPS. Not impressed? Well, he had a 55-game stretch in 2012 in which he hit .199 with a .678 OPS. But in the end, his numbers were where they always are. If the streakiness drives you crazy, maybe that's reason to avoid Bruce in future seasons, but if you own him right now, you have to respect the track record.

As I mentioned in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, he's at least showing signs of coming around, batting .267 (12 for 45) with two home runs so far in June.


Jay Bruce slugs fifth home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-0 win over the Dodgers Wednesday.

Bruce is having a down year offensively, but he's managed to pick up hits in nine of his last 11 games and knock two home runs in his last five games. He owns a .217/.326/.373 line with five home runs, 21 RBI and seven stolen bases in 161 at-bats.


Jay Bruce hits first home run since April Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce smacked his first home run since April 20 Saturday while going 1 for 2 with a walk and three RBI in his team's 6-5 win over the Phillies.

After driving in the first run of the game on a first-inning sacrifice fly, Bruce launched a two-run home run in the fifth inning to put his team up 6-2. The shot ended up being the difference-maker in the close win. Bruce has hit .208/.314/.349 with four home runs, 20 RBI and seven stolen bases in 149 at-bats.


Jay Bruce drives in first runs since return from DL


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce raised his average back over the Mendoza Line Tuesday, with a multiple hit game in an 8-3 win over the Giants.

Bruce went 2 for 4 in the game, and produced runs with each hit. He drove in one in the first inning with a double, and added another on his fifth-inning RBI single; he came around to score each time as well.  

Bruce is hitting just .206 on the season, and has not hit a home run since he returned from the disabled list nine games ago. He has just three homers in 136 at-bats this season. 


Jay Bruce returns to lineup for game against Cardinals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Reds slugger Jay Bruce is in the lineup for the Friday night game against St. Louis for the first time since May 4. He had been on the disabled list with a knee injury that required surgery.

Bruce, who is set to play right field and bat cleanup, hopes he can hit better than he did before he went down. He was on a 4 for 30 slide that dropped his average from .250 to .216. He had no RBI in the last eight games he played before landing in the DL.


Jay Bruce reinstated from disabled list Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce has been reinstated from the disabled list Wednesday.

Bruce had knee surgery in early May, but has progressed fairly well during rehab. He was initially expected to be until at least early June, so the activation comes as somewhat of a surprise. Bruce was not listed in the team's starting lineup for Wednesday's game, and it's unclear when he'll return to action.

Bruce hit .216 in 102 at-bats prior to the injury.


Jay Bruce feels good after workout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce went through a pretty extensive workout Tuesday, and came out of it happy with how his knee responded just a few week's out of surgery.

"It felt good, it felt normal," Bruce told MLB.com. "There's still some swelling there, and the range of motion isn't perfect, but I knew that. Structurally, it's great."

Bruce ran the bases, took batting practice from Mat Latos, slid into third base and cut in the outfielder. He is eligible to come off the disabled list Wednesday, and seems to believe he won't be out much longer.

"I don't want to put dates on it," he said. "Getting close, really close. We'll see [how I] bounce back from this."

Bruce does not seem to think he will require a minor-league rehab assignment to get back up to speed, just over two weeks removed from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. 


Jay Bruce doesn't think he needs rehab stint


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) The Reds have not decided whether outfielder Jay Bruce (knee surgery) will go on a minor-league rehab stint, but Bruce said he doesn't think it's necessary, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer. Bruce is expected to return early next month, if not sooner.

Jay Bruce ready to face live pitching


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Less than two weeks removed from knee surgery, Reds outfielder Jay Bruce has already begun taking batting practice. He will take the next step in his recovery when he faces a rehabbing Mat Latos Tuesday in Washington.

"I think they wanted me to give Jay Bruce an ego boost before he comes back," Latos joked. "I'm going to go out there and lay it down the middle, and hopefully he hits four home runs off me so we can get him back as soon as possible."

Bruce remains on target to return in early June, but he appears to be recovering faster than expected. 


Jay Bruce feeling better after another round of batting practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce (knee) shagged balls in the outfield and took part in another round of batting practice on Saturday, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. He will remain with the team when they go on an upcoming road trip, and could be back early in June.

"Hitting felt the most normal it has in a long time," Bruce said after the session.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
