      Reds' Jay Bruce: Available in trade talks

      The Reds have made it clear that nearly everyone on the team is available in trade talks, including Bruce. Bruce has a limited no-trade clause, including a number of big-market teams. Potential acquiring teams will need to address whether his low batting averages the last two seasons are part of the new norm in today's game and whether they're ok with that if that's the case.

      Reds OF Jay Bruce hits solo home run in Friday's win

      Reds outfielder Jay Bruce went 1 for 3 with a solo homer and two walks in Friday's win over the Brewers. Hits have come few and far between lately for Bruce. However, despite hitting just .188 over the past month, he's managed to drive in 16 RBI and score 19 runs. He ranks fifth among outfielders with 38 RBI since the All-Star break. Whether or not he deserves starts in the fantasy playoffs depends on whether owners are willing to look past a poor average and on-base percentage in exchange for run production.

      Amid deep slump, Reds' Jay Bruce is on the bench on Saturday

      Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers. Bruce had started each of the past 21 games for the Reds, but has really struggled lately. He has just four hits in his last 44 at-bats, with 13 strikeouts and just two walks over that stretch. So, with the Reds facing a left-hander on Saturday, Bruce will catch a breather. Marlon Byrd will slide over to right field while Ivan De Jesus plays left field.

      Manager: Reds RF Jay Bruce getting scheduled day off Friday

      Bryan Price has declared that absence of Reds right fielder Jay Bruce from the lineup for the Friday night game against Pittsburgh and is no indication of an impending trade, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

      Reds RF Jay Bruce slugs three-run home run in loss Saturday

      Right fielder Jay Bruce was the only source of offense for the Reds on Saturday, as they fell to the Indians 9-4. Bruce went 2 for 3 with four RBI and a run scored, including a three-run home run in the eighth inning. The home run came a bit too late however, as the Indians were already leading 9-1 at the time. It was Bruce's 14th home run of the year, and the second in his last five games. "Everyone battles a little sluggishness when you come back from a break, and it's important to try to counteract that as much as you can," Bruce said, per MLB.com. "It turned out to be an OK night for me individually, but we got to hopefully play some better baseball." The potential trade candidate is batting .355 with two homers in 12 games so far this month.

      Reds OF Jay Bruce available in trade

      CBS Sports baseball insider Jon Heyman is reporting that Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is available on the trade market, possibly the first of many such players as Cincinnati moves into the seller's market after the All-Star break. Bruce has struggled this year, though a recent hot streak has lifted his average to .251. Over his last 22 games, he is hitting .357 with 11 doubles, four home runs and 13 RBI. Bruce is making $12 million this season and is scheduled to make $12.5 million next season, with a no-trade clause to eight teams. Bruce could be an attractive candidate to a team like the Angels, who are looking for a left-handed bat. Cincinnati's struggles this year may open the door to other trades, including pitchers Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake and closer Aroldis Chapman.
