Reds | Jay Bruce starting Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:57:11 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is back in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Saturday, Aug. 1. He will bat cleanup and play right field. OF Marlon Byrd, who played right field Friday, July 31, will move back to left field and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is 8-for-22 (.364) with two home runs and 10 RBIs over the past week, making him worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups. He is 3-for-12 (.250) with a double and an RBI in his career against Cole.

Reds | Jay Bruce out of the starting lineup

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:29:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 31. It is a planned night off and does not mean he will be traded.

Fantasy Tip: Jason Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) draws into the lineup in place of Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap), and Bourgeois will bat second against Pirates SP Jeff Locke ($5,600, 11.2% of cap). Bourgeois is a worthy low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday, especially at his cap hit. Stay tuned on the Bruce trade front.

Mets | Jay Bruce not headed to Mets?

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:48:22 -0700

The New York Mets and Cincinnati Reds may have hit a snag in their discussions on sending OF Jay Bruce to the Mets, according to sources. The Reds are having second thoughts about what the Mets are offering.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets' attempt at a trade for another high-profile outfielder fell apart the other day, too, when they balked at acquiring Carlos Gomez. Could it happen again? Stay tuned as the trade deadline nears. Bruce's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) fantasy value figures to take at least a slight hit if he moves to a pitcher-friendly environment at Citi Field.

Mets | NY closer to getting Jay Bruce

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:57:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is closer to being traded to the New York Mets in exchange for SP Zack Wheeler Friday, July 31. The two teams are reviewing medical information. Bruce is hitting .257 with 17 home runs and 59 RBI in 350 at-bats and will make $12.5 million next year with a team option for $13 million for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets could surely use a power boost that Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) would give them. Bruce's fantasy value might take a small hit moving to a more pitcher-friendly environment in Citi Field, although his power can play anywhere.

Reds | Jay Bruce to the Mets?

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 06:21:10 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce was the focus of overnight trade talks Friday, July 31, with the New York Mets. Industry sources expect the deal will happen.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has been on a tear of late, with 10 RBI in his last five games. Citi Field is among the best parks for hitters, but the lineup could negatively impact Bruce's fantasy worth.

Reds | Jay Bruce on a tear

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 21:19:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with three RBI in a 15-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 30, and he has had at least one RBI in five straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has 10 RBI during the streak, but with his name being mentioned in trade rumors, he is a risky option at FantasyScore Friday with the trade deadline looming.

Mets | Jay Bruce an option for Mets?

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:14:36 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds are willing to trade OF Jay Bruce to the New York Mets for SP Zack Wheeler now.

Fantasy Tip: A move away from the hitter-friendly environment of Great American Ballpark to the more pitching-friendly venue of Citi Field would cause Bruce's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) to drop a little bit. However, he has power that plays anywhere, so it probably wouldn't be a drastic shift.

Reds | Jay Bruce moving up team list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:52:00 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce belted a solo home run Wednesday, July 29, against the St. Louis Cardinals, providing all of the offense in a 1-0 win. It was his 199th homer, moving him past Hall of Famer Barry Larkin into ninth place on the team's all-time homers list.

Fantasy Tip: The homer could be Bruce's last in a Cincinnati uniform, as his name has been bandied about in many trade rumors. Over the course of the next few days it might be prudent to avoid Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and his high salary in FantasyScore in case he is moved.

Mets | NY wants to add another bat

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:17:58 -0700

The New York Mets want to add another big bat at the trading deadline, and they have their sights set on San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton, Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez, Milwaukee Brewers OFs Carlos Gomez and Gerardo Parra and Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce. The Padres and Mets didn't agree on a prospect package for Upton, but the talks could be rekindled. Gonzalez's price tag would be high, as he is heating up this summer. The Reds are showing interest in SP Zack Wheeler in exchange for Bruce. Reds OF Marlon Byrd could be a fallback option for the Mets.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets surely could use a boost on the offensive side, and any of these bats would do just fine. A move to New York for any of these names is unlikely to drastically affect their fantasy value, although some of those names would be leaving fine hitting environments.

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.
