JAY BRUCE NEWS

Bouncing Back in 2015 – NL Central

The Chicago Cubs are in the middle of what might be the greatest movement of young talent in the history of baseball. I guess that will play itself out; however, that does make finding people to look to bounce back on the offensive side of things difficult. Thank God for the Cubs pitching staff however, because they have two guys that can’t get much worse than they were last year...

Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, and the Back Leg

Last year, Cincinnati’s two middle of the order bats both had back leg injuries that robbed them of much of their power. Because of the complicated nature of swing mechanics, maybe it’s not surprising that both sluggers were affected differently by left leg injuries. But they did suffer. “I saw a lot of ground balls […]

Austin Meadows Lowered His Hand Position to Add More Power

Ever since he was drafted, Austin Meadows was regarded as a prospect with power that you could dream about. He drew comps to Jay Bruce in the 2013 draft, due to his power potential from a corner outfield spot. In fact, one of the first times I saw Meadows in 2013, he homered with a towering shot over the right field fence at Pirate City. Immediately after the homer, one of the scouts...

Reds' Bruce well aware of need for improvement in 2015

GOODYEAR, AZ. -- Jay Bruce was lacing up his spikes in the Cincinnati Reds spring training clubhouse and chatting with a writer when teammate Jason Marquis asked, "Why does he want to talk to you?" Bruce smiled and said, "Because I stunk last year, Jason. That's why everybody wants to talk to me. Am I not going to stink is what they are all asking me." That, in a few words, is Jay...

Reds Willing To Deal Jay Bruce

It has been no secret going into this offseason that the Cincinnati Reds have a large team payroll and are looking to rid themselves of some of the hefty salaries that they have on their hands. Jayson Stark tweeted earlier today that the Reds are willing to trade outfielder Jay Bruce, but it seems a deal will only be done if the Reds are overwhelmed by the offer they receive. Jay...

Could Jay Bruce Be A Viable Trade Target?

The Cincinnati Reds were a very interesting team this year. Finishing with their worst record since 2008, the team failed to make the playoffs after reaching the dance in three of the last four seasons. Looking to rebound from a down year, you have to wonder if the Reds would consider shaking things up. It could start with Jay Bruce. Heading into 2015, there really isn’t much...
