Reds | Jay Bruce on bench for Game 1

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 06:59:05 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is out of the lineup for the first day of a doubleheader Wednesday, July 22, with OF Jason Bourgeois hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is just 3-for-18 on the year and isn't worth the flyer on FantasyScore.

Orioles | BAL interested in Reds' Cueto, Bruce

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 06:28:04 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto and OF Jay Bruce are two players the Baltimore Orioles have expressed interest in.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) is a top-flight consideration on FantasyScore every time his turn comes around. Bruce's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) .252-14-46 line is on par with his career numbers. He's an above-average option on FantasyScore.

Angels | LAA interested in Jay Bruce

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 13:22:26 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have expressed interest in Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce. An Angels scout was on hand to watch the Reds during their game Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Sunday, Bruce ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was batting .255 with 14 home runs and 46 RBIs. Changing teams wouldn't significantly impact his fantasy value, although it would be interesting to see how he would fare in a lineup that already includes Albert Pujols and Mike Trout.

Reds | Jay Bruce picking up pace

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 20:55:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 2-for-3 with a home run, four RBI and a run scored in a 9-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians Saturday, July 18, and he has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been awful for most of the year, but he is starting to swing a hot bat. He has been known to go on torrid hot streaks, so he could be worth rolling the dice on at FantasyScore in the coming days.

Reds | Jay Bruce availabe for trade

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 10:16:31 -0700

Cincinnati Red OF Jay Bruce is available for trade, and John Heyman of CBSSports speculates that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim could be the team most in need of Bruce's left-handed power bat. He has been hitting better of late, which has made the Reds unwilling to significantly pay down the remaining money on his contract - $19.5 million guaranteed through 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) fantasy value wouldn't be significantly impacted by a change of teams, but the chance to go from the sixth worst run-scoring offense in baseball to the 16th best and hit in a lineup with Mike Trout and Albert Pujols would be an intriguing development.

Reds | Jay Bruce getting hot closer to deadline

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 09:34:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce started slow the first five weeks of the 2015 season but has picked up his play, batting .357 with 11 doubles and four home runs in his last 22 games. Bruce has an affordable contract - $12.5 million for 2016 and a club option for $13 million for 2017 - with a limited no-trade clause. He can block a trade to the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays, Miami Marlins, Minnesota Twins, Oakland Athletics, Arizona Diamondbacks and Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) can be brutal in batting average, but he has impact power and he steals the occasional base. In daily formats, it is worth noting that while Bruce bats left-handed, he hits for a better batting average and higher OPS against left-handed pitching. He has been rumored to be on the trading block, but a trade is unlikely to drastically impact his fantasy value.

Reds | Jay Bruce sitting out vs. Pirates

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:46:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. 2B Skip Schumaker is starting in right field and batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Bruce ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is currently in fine form and sporting a seven-game hitting streak with nine runs, three home runs, nine RBI and a .467/.500/.900 slash line. Against Burnett, Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Reds | Jay Bruce rolling right along

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 20:54:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 2-for-5 with a double, run scored and RBI Wednesday, June 24, against the Pittsburgh Pirates to push his hitting streak to seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce is hitting .467 (14-for-30) during his seven-game run, making him a tremendous FantasyScore play at $4,500 (or 9.0% of cap).

Reds | Jay Bruce has another big night

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 19:59:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 2-for-5 with two runs, a home run and three RBI during the Reds' 7-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been known throughout his career to go on torrid hot stretches, and he entered the game Tuesday with a .500/.545/.950 slash line over his previous five games with six runs, three doubles, two home runs and five RBI. At his reasonable cap hit, FantasyScore players should be willing to take a stab. Just note his pitching matchup against Pirates SP Gerrit Cole is far from ideal Wednesday, June 24.

Reds | Jay Bruce dialed in

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 19:16:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI, a run scored, a walk and a stolen base in a 5-0 win over the Miami Marlins Friday, June 19, and he is 8-for-12 at the plate over his last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has struggled for much of the season, but with eight hits and just one strikeout over his last four games, he seems to being seeing the ball as well as he has all year. Bruce has been streaky throughout his career, so you could have a small window to take advantage of him at FantasyScore.
