Reds RF Jay Bruce turning things on at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Reds right fielder Jay Bruce started the season in a bit of a slump, but has turned things around rather quickly. The veteran has bumped his average from .162 to .224 in the last two weeks, including five multi-hit games in his last eight.

"He's been terrific," Reds manager Bryan Price said to MLB.com. "He's stayed the course. He's looking for the right pitch to hit early in the count, and he's battling with two strikes. That's a great approach for anybody, and not easy to do. It's exciting to watch because he's a huge part of our offense."

Reds move Votto, Frazier, Bruce up in order Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Reds have shifted the heart of their order up, with first baseman Joey Votto batting second, third baseman Todd Frazier batting third and right fielder Jay Bruce batting fourth on Monday against the Rockies.

The Reds have tried a multitude of options in the No. 2 spot after moving Votto out of it on April 26, but they'll go with Votto, Frazier and Bruce in the second, third and fourth positions for just the second time this season, with former cleanup hitter Brandon Phillips batting leadoff.

The Reds are favorites (-140) against the Rockies on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.

Reds' Jay Bruce homers in second straight game Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds right fielder Jay Bruce went 3 for 5 with a home run and two RBI in his team's 9-8 loss to the Giants on Sunday.

It was the second home run in as many days for Bruce, who went 2 for 4 with a solo homer on Saturday. He picked up his first RBI on a bases loaded single in the third inning then added a solo home run in the seventh to cut his team's deficit to one run.

"Honestly, I haven't felt bad all year. I felt super normal," Bruce said to MLB.com. "I've felt healthy. I've felt strong. It's just missing. I'm going to keep working and keep doing everything I've been doing all year and continue to try and get everything I can get."

Bruce has hit .190/.290/.397 with seven home runs, 19 RBI and three stolen bases in 126 at-bats.

"There is no doubt that confidence is fed by success. That's a no-brainer," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "To have a three-hit day with a homer and smoke that ball off the wall -- those are big things for him, for anybody. Hopefully it continues to spur him offensively. That would be a big piece for us, especially hitting seventh."

Reds' Jay Bruce gets an off day vs. Madison Bumgarner, Giants
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Reds outfielder Jay Bruce was held out of the starting lineup against left-hander Madison Bumgarner and the Giants on Friday, per the team's official website. Kris Negron will bat eighth and play in right field in Bruce's absence.

"I've got to find my days for the other guys," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "I'm hoping to get [Brennan] Boesch in this series and give him a start. I have to pick my times for these guys. Sometimes if it's a tougher match-up, I will do that. It's nothing to read into anything other than a day off [for Bruce] against a tough lefty."

Bruce has shown some power, but is off to a slow start at the plate this season. He is hitting .162 (19 for 117) with a double, two triples, five homers and 16 RBI in 34 games. He is a .206 hitter this season against left-handed pitching.

Cincinnati is an underdog (+125) at home against the Giants, per VegasInsider.com.
