Jay Bruce – RF

Bruce has been one of the top power hitters in the game since his arrival to Cincinnati in 2008. In that short time, Bruce has hit over 215 home runs through May of 2016. He has only had one season under 20 and three seasons over 30 homers. Bruce is also a strong gap hitter, as he has three seasons of at least 25 doubles, including 43 in 2013. Bruce also has a well-known strong arm in right, as he has compiled 77 assists in nine seasons. The former first round pick Bruce took only three minor league seasons to make it to the big leagues and just recently turned 29 years old. The Reds will have a decision to make on Bruce after the 2016 season, as he will become a free agent. There have been reports that they have been shopping Bruce, but no deal has been made yet.
