Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is not in the lineup Monday against the Brewers.
Insight: Bruce is hitless in his last 15 at-bats and has gone 8-for-65 (.123) over his last 18 games, so the Reds will give him a break.
 
7/13/2014 12:14:00 PM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce doesn't have a hit in 14 career at-bats against Pirates starter Francisco Liriano.
Insight: Of course, that could mean he's due, but fantasy owners shouldn't take the chance Sunday especially with Bruce hitting .233 with a.726 OPS this season.
 
7/10/2014 10:24:00 AM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Chicago Cubs.
Insight: Just a day of rest. Bruce had homered in three consecutive games until Wednesday's game. The Reds Thursday lineup looks like a Triple-A roster due to rest and injuries.
 
Hot7/8/2014 7:38:00 PM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce homered for the third straight game Tuesday against the Cubs.
Insight: Bruce has gone 4-for-12 with three homers, seven RBI and five runs in his last three games after going 0-for-21 from June 29 to July 5. This is nothing new for Bruce, who may be the streakiest hitter in the league.
 
7/7/2014 11:04:00 PM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce homered for the second straight game Monday against the Cubs.
Insight: Bruce started at first base with Joey Votto sidelined. He's one of the streakiest hitters in the league and could be streaking in the right direction now after going 0-for-21 from June 29 to July 5.
 
Cold7/7/2014 3:51:00 PM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce will start at first base Monday night.
Insight: With Votto sidelined, Bruce could gain 1B eligibility. Bruce has got to be the streakiest hitter in the big leagues. When he's hot you have to start him every day, but when he's cold it doesn't matter whether its a good matchup or bad. Bruce has one hit in his last 18 at-bats.
 
7/6/2014 4:21:00 PM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce ended a six-game hitless streak with a home run in the eighth inning.
Insight: Bruce has got to be the streakiest hitter in the big leagues. When he's hot you have to start him every day, but when he's cold it doesn't matter whether its a good matchup or bad.

Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is 15-for-44 with two home runs and nine RBI against Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo.
Insight: Bruce, like Brandon Phillips, has great numbers against Gallardo and has been struggling of late, so perhaps he's due for a big afternoon. Three of his 15 hits against the Milwaukee righty have been doubles and he's also walked four times and stolen two bases against him.
 
Cold7/5/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is 8-for-19 (.421) with two homers against Milwaukee starter Matt Garza.
Insight: Bruce's recent hot streak is a thing of the past as he's hitless over the past five games. At times like this his hot/cold streak usually outweighs the matchup. Look elsewhere for outfield help.
 
Hot6/29/2014 11:09:00 AM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is in one of his typical hot streaks and has a favorable matchup on Sunday making him a must-start candidate.
Insight: Bruce is 3-for-7 with a home run against Tim Hudson, but more importantly is hitting .440 over his last six games and batting .323 over the past four weeks. Never abandon Bruce while he's hitting like this.

Hot6/27/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is in one of his typical hot streaks and at this time you should ignore the bad matchup and play him anyway.

Description: Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is 1-for-9 (.111) with three srikeouts versus San Francisco starter Madison Bumgarner.
