Mets' Jay Bruce: Returning to lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (hip) will play right field and bat sixth in the order in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports.

Bruce experienced some stiffness in his right hip prior to Sunday's game and was held out the last two days, which provided sufficient time off for him to recover. He'll take back his usual spot in right field, which suggests the Mets aren't concerned about the hip injury affecting his mobility.

Mets' Jay Bruce: Could return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The Mets play a road game Monday, which requires a bus trip, and then have an off-day Tuesday, so Bruce will get a couple of days 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.

Mets' Jay Bruce: Sits out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce was scratched from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins due to a tight right hip, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

This is the first news of Bruce dealing with hip discomfort this spring, so it appears that his scratch is just precautionary. He's considered day-to-day for now.

Mets' Jay Bruce: Will play first base at least once more this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce didn't look out of place defensively at first base Tuesday, and will play at least one more game at the position this spring, The New York Daily News reports. "No one got hurt, so that's a good start. It was fine," Bruce said with a laugh following the game. "I was happy to pick that ball, the ball I got thrown to me, that was good. I need to get the ball to Jake (deGrom) a little quicker [on an underhand throw to first after fielding a grounder]. Overall, I felt comfortable. It's definitely faster and, you know, it's different, but it was fun."

The Mets were hit hard by injuries last year, and in response seem intent on setting up contingency plans wherever they can for 2017. The 29-year-old may not see any game action at all at first base during the regular season if Lucas Duda stays healthy, but if Duda's back becomes an issue again, Bruce could pick up some extra position eligibility to go along with the extra at-bats.

Mets' Jay Bruce: Starting at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce is getting a start at first base Tuesday, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

This was anticipated when Lucas Duda was dealing with a back injury, but now that Duda is supposedly back to full health, it comes as something of a surprise that Bruce would still get action at first base. Of course, the Mets have five MLB-caliber outfielders for three spots, so they will have to get creative in order to get everyone semi-regular action. It's possible that Bruce will add first base eligibility in leagues with more liberal position-eligibility guidelines.
