Jay Bruce's don't exactly come around often. Since Bruce, the Reds have drafted Todd Frazier (he was a shortstop, but no one actually expected him to stick) in the first round, Neftali Soto in the 3rd round (again a shortstop, but one who wasn't expected to stick), Yonder Alonso in the first round and Gabriel Rosa in the 2nd round.
Not really a true outfielder in the bunch, but to suggest they haven't gone after corner bats is a big stretch. They have gone after some and for the most part, have turned out pretty good.
