Mets' Jay Bruce: Could return Wednesday

Bruce (hip) will likely return to the lineup Wednesday, Newsday reports.

The Mets play a road game Monday, which requires a bus trip, then have an off day Tuesday, so Bruce will get some time to rest up. The veteran outfielder suggested the extra work he's been getting at first base could be the cause of the stiffness in his right hip, but neither he nor the team seems to view it as anything serious.
