PLAYERS: Jay Bruce
TEAMS: Cincinnati Reds
Jay Bruce “pranked” the finalists for the MLB Fan Cave by setting up a faulty table to hold his “Silver Slugger Award.” Then, when the finalists were “in a hurry” to ask him rapid-fire questions, one guy “knocked it over.” Awkward! Your browser does not support iframes. Truly, it is “hilarious.”

Center fielders getting crash course from Davis

GLENDALE, Ariz.

Other Prospects

Cincinnati boasted the top bullpen in baseball last year and come into 2013 with great depth despite losing Aroldis Chapman to the rotation. They don’t any reliever prospects knocking on the MLB door right now, but there are a lot of strong arms that could make a case in the future.
