Report: Reds considering dealing high-priced veterans
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Reds are considering lowering their payroll by trading top position players, including slugging outfielder Jay Bruce, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

The team has made no secret of its desire to give up one of its starting pitchers, including premier talents such as Johnny Cueto and Mat Latos. But the Reds are also discussing possible swaps involving two-time All-Star right fielder Jay Bruce, major league sources have told Rosenthal.

The Reds have $75.5 million committed in 2015 and could try to vault back into playoff contention behind a healthy Joey Votto and Bruce. But it might not be a viable financial option. They spent $114 million on payroll last year and are projected to be at $120 million next season. Trading Bruce and one starting pitcher would reduce that figure significantly - Bruce alone will be owed $12 million.

One problem with that tactic is that the Reds would be trading an undervalued Bruce coming off a poor season in which he batted .217 with 18 home runs. However, the power-desperate Padres are reportedly inteterested in obtaining Bruce.

Report: Reds have talked about dealing Jay Bruce
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Reds have talked about dealing outfielder Jay Bruce, according to FoxSports.com.

The 27-year-old is a two-time All-Star, but is coming off a poor offensive season. Bruce hit just .217/.281/.373 over 493 at-bats. He missed time during the season due to knee surgery. Bruce is under contract for the next two seasons, and has a club option for 2017. He's expected to be ready for spring training.

Jay Bruce takes a seat against lefty
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Reds outfielder Jay Bruce was out of the lineup for just the second time in 11 games with left-hander Travis Wood on the hill for the Cubs Monday. Yorman Rodriguez started in his place. Wood is the first left-handed starting pitcher the Reds have faced in 14 games.

While Bruce has struggled for virtually all of 2014, he's been especially bad lately, batting .167 (12 for 72) with two home runs in his last 22 games. He has hit .168 with a .582 OPS against lefties this season.
