Jay Bruce, OF, Triple-A Louisville (Reds)
Well, thereís one common email out of the way. When are the Reds going to call up Jay Bruce? The answer is... today. And itís been a long time coming, as Bruce was basically wasting time at Triple-A Louisville, batting .364/.393/.630 in 49 games and a ridiculous .419/.453/.709 mark in May. The Reds didnít want to bring Bruce up until they could get him consistent at-bats, and thatís not going to happen as Bruce takes over as the primary center fielder. Thereís really nothing new to tell anybody here--Bruce is a stud, and pretty much anyone who follows baseball knows it. But now itís easier to watch him every day, and he definitely has the potential to be one of those players where one stops everything they're doing, just to see him hit.
