Bruce (hip) has been shut down for 10 days, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports. Tuesday marks the third day of that period, so Bruce could return to baseball activities July 18. It's unclear how much time he'll need to build back up.
Bruce (hip) is expected to start taking batting practice sometime this week, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Bruce has been on the shelf since June 19 as he attempts to recover from a hip strain. It's good news that he's beginning to make some progress, and his status moving forward will likely be determined by how he feels after taking batting practice.
Bruce (hip) said that he's been dealing with a variation of this injury since mid-March and that he will give his body "proper time" to rest and reset, Erin Fish of MLB.com reports. Bruce added that he's under the impression that all of his injuries -- ranging from the hip to his back and foot -- are all inter-connected and that he will "reset his body" over the coming days. At this time, there is still no time frame for the outfielder's return, so expect him to need at least a couple weeks on the shelf.
Bruce (hip) is dealing with a strained right hip, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports. With manager Mickey Callaway's announcement that "there's definitely something there," it looks as though Bruce may miss an extended period of time recovering from this injury. The Mets have yet to describe a definitive timetable but expect something to come forward by the end of this weekend.
Bruce was placed on the disabled list with a sore right hip Tuesday. Bruce had started just one of the Mets' last five games while battling the issue. He's had a disappointing season for the Mets so far this year, hitting .212 with just three homers in 62 games. Reliever Tim Peterson was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move. Jose Bautista is likely to have an everyday role in the outfield while Bruce remains out.
