    Jay Bruce?

    Did I miss something. Is Jay Bruce out with an injury? If so, how long? Thanks.

    Bruce bruised his right shoulder on August 11 while trying to make a diving catch. He'll probably be back soon. The rest could do him some good as he was starting to wear down due to never playing a full season of minor league baseball.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Bruce, who is resting a bruised right shoulder — "It's fine, look," he said, windmilling his arm above his head. "I have full range of motion" — should return to the lineup this week. With the two outfielders hitting, that could be enough to propel the Dragons into the playoffs.

    Thanks to Marc Katz at the DDN.

    If one adheres to the baseball axiom - 'challenge thy hitters' - why hasn't Jay Bruce been advanced to Sarasota? Going by his numbers, he doesn't have anything left to prove at Dayton.

    They possible wanted Jay to stay aronud for the playoff push, and possibly dont want him anywhere near Sarasota. Joey Votto really struggled last year in Sarasota (of course he had the take the first strike thing also), and has flourished in Chattanooga. Jay has said he wants to make AA out of ST next year. Maybe that is their plan?

    That's what the Reds should be doing all along- pooling the best young hitters a year out of the draft at Dayton and the pitchers in that same category at Sarasota. If nothing else, it boosts trade value, and a good portion of the value of prospects is what you can get for them and not solely the prospect's chances to "make it".

    If Bruce continues to progress at his current rate, I would think that his second full season would be much like Homer's. Half in Sarasota, half in Chattanooga.

    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Bruce's absence isn't helping the Dragons' playoff push any. They're now 2.5 games out of the final spot with a couple of weeks left.

    Fine with me. I dont think those pitchers need playoffs.

    He didn't play again tonight. I would be fine if they just shut him down the rest of the year and push him hard next year.

    Not me. Unless he's hurt bad, make him play through the wall.
