Re: Jay Bruce Current Splits
For what it's worth, Bruce's strikeout rate this year isn't really any different than it was last year. His walk rate is down slightly, though.
The question at hand is whether further exposure to Triple-A will do him any real good. At every level since last spring's start in Sarasota, he's struck out a little more than we'd like and walked a little less than we'd like. And absolutely torn the cover off the ball. So it is again, at .348 with a .991 OPS as of this afternoon. He's probably going to have to learn the rest of his lessons in the majors; Triple-A pitchers simply aren't going to get him out often enough to effect behavior change.
