Phillies' Jay Bruce: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce isn't in Saturday's lineup against the Rays.

Bruce will retreat to the bench after going hitless with one walk and four strikeouts in his last 12 plate appearances. Bryce Harper will rest his legs as the designated hitter Saturday with Phil Gosselin starting in right field.

Phillies' Jay Bruce: On bench for second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce will sit for the evening portion of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Bruce started at first base in the afternoon game, going 0-for-3 at the plate. Alec Bohm starts there in the nightcap, with J.T. Realmuto serving as the designated hitter.

Phillies' Jay Bruce: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

Bruce returned from the 10-day injured list Friday and filled a starting role in the Phillies' last two games, going 1-for-7 with a double and a walk. Though he'll take a seat Sunday, Bruce should have a regular spot in the lineup waiting for him against right-handers during the final week of the season.

Phillies' Jay Bruce: Back from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (quadriceps) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

The 33-year-old aggravated his quadriceps injury Sept. 6 and has since been on the injured list, but he'll rejoin the roster for Friday's doubleheader. Bruce isn't in the lineup for the matinee but could return to the starting nine in Game 2.

Phillies' Jay Bruce: Not yet ready for IL return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillies manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday that Bruce (quadriceps) is still a couple days away from a return from the 10-day injured list, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

With Kyle Garlick (oblique) and starting pitcher Jake Arrieta (hamstring) joining a growing list of banged-up Phillies on Tuesday, Bruce's impending return is a rare bit of positive injury news for the team. If Bruce gains clearance to play at some point during the Phillies' weekend series with the Blue Jays, he should immediately step back into a strong-side platoon role at designated hitter. He could also be in the mix for work at first base with Rhys Hoskins (elbow) in danger of missing the remainder of the season.

Phillies' Jay Bruce: Officially back to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce was placed on the injured list with a quadriceps injury Sunday.

Bruce exited Saturday's contest after aggravating his quad injury and finds himself back on the injured list. With Roman Quinn also sidelined (concussion), Kyle Garlick and Phil Gosselin could get some extra run in the outfield.

September 6, 2020 01:32 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (quadriceps) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

Bruce is reportedly a candidate to hit the injured list after aggravating a quad injury that cost him several games in late August. While that move has yet to be official, he remains out of the lineup. Neil Walker takes over designated hitter duties and is batting eighth.

September 5, 2020 10:40 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Likely headed back to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce aggravated his quad injury in Saturday's game against the Mets and is likely headed back to the injured list, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Bruce missed 10 days in late August with a quad injury, and it looks like he is going to miss at least that much time again for the same reason.

Phillies' Jay Bruce: Homers again in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday as he helped the Phillies to a 3-0 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Bruce launched his second homer in three games as he has shown some solid power since returning from the 10-day injured list Monday. The 33-year-old has six long balls and 13 RBI and should continue to see the majority of his playing time as the team's designated hitter.

September 1, 2020 03:32 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

Bruce homered Monday in his first game back from the 10-day injured list, but he'll get a breather for the second game of the series. Andrew McCutchen will rest his legs as the designated hitter with Phil Gosselin starting in left field.

September 1, 2020 01:04 AM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored in Monday's 8-6 win over the Nationals.

Bruce was activated ahead of Monday's contest and homered in his first at-bat in his return. The 33-year-old has five long balls and a .931 OPS this season.

August 31, 2020 04:40 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (quadriceps) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Monday's game against the Nationals.

He will likely be in the lineup Monday against righty Erick Fedde. Bruce should resume his designated hitter duties, potentially getting spelled against southpaws. He hit .231/.273/.596 with four home runs in 16 games prior to landing on the IL.

August 22, 2020 03:40 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a quadriceps injury, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Bruce has seen inconsistent playing time recently with a lingering quad issue, and the team hopes that a trip to the injured list will help his health over the rest of the season. It's unclear whether he'll be able to return after spending the minimum of 10 days sidelined. Adam Haseley (wrist) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

August 21, 2020 03:20 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce is out of the lineup Friday against the Braves, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Bruce returned from a two-game absence to start Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader, and he went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts. He returns to the bench with lefty Max Fried starting for Atlanta. Phil Gosselin will bat fifth as the designated hitter Friday.

August 20, 2020 04:20 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (leg) is starting at DH and hitting sixth in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

As expected, Bruce has been cleared to rejoin the lineup for the second half of Thursday's twin bill after missing a pair of games with a leg injury. The veteran slugger, who is hitting .245 with four home runs and 11 RBI through 15 games this season, will face Trent Thornton in his first game back.

Phillies' Jay Bruce: Not starting first game of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (leg) is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Blue Jays.

The Phillies expect Bruce to make his return to the lineup Thursday, but manager Joe Girardi may be waiting until the second game of the twin bill to insert the veteran slugger back in the starting nine. Andrew McCutchen serves as the Phillies' designated hitter in the first game.

August 19, 2020 05:32 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Likely starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (leg) will likely start Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

An apparent leg issue kept Bruce out of the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox, but it was a natural game for him to sit out with southpaw Kyle Hart on the mound for Boston. However, manager Joe Girardi said after the loss that Bruce is likely to return to the lineup for the series opener against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

August 19, 2020 12:08 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Boston is bringing a southpaw starter (Kyle Hart) to the hill for the series finale, so the lefty-hitting Bruce will take a seat while Andrew McCutchen fills in for him as the Phillies' designated hitter. Bruce came up big during Tuesday's 13-6 win, going 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI.

August 19, 2020 03:48 PM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Plates four Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (quad) went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and an RBI single in Tuesday's 13-6 win over the Red Sox.

Bruce didn't miss a game with the quad injury, and he didn't seem too bothered by it during Tuesday's outing. In the fourth inning, his RBI single got the Phillies on the board. He then rounded out their explosive night with a three-run blast in the eighth off Red Sox reliever Marcus Walden. Bruce is slashing .245/.288/.633 with four homers, 11 RBI and six runs scored through 15 games this season.

August 19, 2020 12:16 AM
Phillies' Jay Bruce: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce (quad) is in the lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Bruce left Sunday's contest with a left quadriceps injury, but he's not slated to miss any additional time. The 33-year-old will need to pass some tests during batting practice prior to Tuesday's contest, but he should be available going forward if all goes smoothly.
