Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce was 1-for-4 with a run scored in the loss to the Brewers on Friday.
Insight: It was a tough loss as Bruce scored Cincinnati's only run, and the Brewers scored 12. Furthermore, Bruce didn't score his run until the ninth. Bruce is hitting .238 with 12 home runs and 40 RBI in 269 at-bats this season.
 
Hot6/25/2015 10:07:00 AM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is on a tear this week, but faced a historically bad matchup on Thursday.
Insight: This is one of those really tough decisions. The streaky Bruce is batting .364 over the past two weeks with a 1.110 OPS, but he's just 3-for-31 with 11 strikeouts against Pirates starter A.J. Burnett. When Bruce gets hot he usually hits anything, so I give the edge to the hitter, slightly, in this one.

Bruce hit a solo homer in the sixth to bring Cincinnati within a run, but that was it for the scoring. Bruce is batting .237 with 12 home runs and 37 RBI in 236 at-bats this season.

Insight: In case you haven't been paying attention, the streaky Bruce has been warming up with the weather. He's batting .288 over the past 14 games with three homers and a .920 OPS. Time to start using him in your lineup again.

Cold5/15/2015 2:48:00 PM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is not in Friday's starting lineup
Insight: Bruce doesn't have a good past history versus Giants Madison Bumgarner. Of course, a lot of guys can say that.
 
Cold5/7/2015 10:20:00 AM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is just 3-for-29 (.103) with 11 strikeouts versus Pirates starter A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Bruce is 1-for-12 over the past three games and could get a day off. Even if he plays, he shouldn't be in your fantasy lineup.
 
4/29/2015 10:38:00 AM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce could be in line for a string Game Wednesday versus Milwaukee.

Insight: Bruce is a career 2-for-11 with six strikeouts against Arrieta, so manager Bryan Price has elected to give Bruce the day off. Brennan Boesch is starting in right field for the Reds.
 
4/25/2015 10:40:00 AM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is not in Saturday's starting lineup versus the Cubs and Jake Arrieta.
Insight: Bruce is a career 2-for-11 with six strikeouts against Arrieta and combined with a slow start (.164 this season) has earned him a day of rest.
 
4/17/2015 11:30:00 AM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce should be avoided on Friday night against the Cardinals and Michael Wacha.
Insight: Bruce is hitless in 16 at-bats against Wacha and struck out in half those at-bats. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
 
4/12/2015 5:24:00 PM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce smacked a homer Sunday against St. Louis.
Insight: Bruce has just a .200/.360/.500 line early this year, but does have two homers through six games. The power will be there for him.
 
4/9/2015 10:12:00 AM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is just 3-for-27 (.111) with 10 strikeouts against Pirates right-hander A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Bruce usually hits right-handers better than lefties (.262 vs. .226), but this is an exception to the rule. The Reds left-handed slugger homered on Opening Day as he tries to rebound from a disappointing 2014. Thursday is probably a day for fantasy owners to look elsewhere.
 
4/6/2015 7:33:00 PM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce went 1-for-2 with a solo bomb against the Pirates on Opening Day.
Insight: The Sports Network has Bruce has a big bounce back candidate this season, and this is a great way for Bruce to start 2015.
 
4/6/2015 10:39:00 AM
Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is a career 0-for-16 with six strikeouts against Pirates starter Francisco Liriano.
Insight: Bruce hit just .217/.281/.373, but he is one of The Sports Network's bounce back candidates this season. It just isn't likely to start on opening day against Liriano. Sit him.
 
3/11/2015 2:57:00 PM
Description: The Reds scratched outfielder Jay Bruce from Wednesday's lineup due to a strained right calf.
Insight: Bruce hit just .217/.281/.373, but he is one of The Sports Network's bounce back candidates this season. As long as he is healthy, he could be a fantasy sleeper.
