Mets place Jay Bruce on disabled list

Bruce has finally hit the DL. The Mets have announced that right fielder Jay Bruce has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a right hip injury. Bruce had also been battling plantar fasciitis in his left foot and back issues. He had to be scratched from the lineup in yesterday’s game against the Colorado Rockies principally due to the hip issue. The Mets have called up reliever Tim Peterson from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Bruce on the roster. Bruce has struggled at the plate this year, hitting just .212/.292/.321 with three home runs and only 17 RBIs. Last year with the...

Mets need to give slumping Jay Bruce a mental health break

New York Mets right fielder Jay Bruce is struggling and it’s time he watches from the bench for a few games.

The Mets have been patient with Jay Bruce because of his solid approach

The process has been admirable for the veteran, even if the results haven’t shown up yet. There are a lot of players not playing well for the Mets right now, but none of them are making as much money as Jay Bruce. The veteran outfielder will make $11 million this year and is under contract for two more seasons afterwards, so his struggles have been particularly distressing. If Bruce is hitting .216/.297/.327 with a 74 wRC+ right now, just what can we expect as he gets older in 2019 and 2020? We should expect a better Bruce, and not just because it’s tough for a guy who has hit 69 home...

Jay Bruce’s butt and pride hurt

ATLANTA — Jay Bruce’s personal hell now includes a sore “upper butt” and the embarrassment that came from his nonchalance in Wednesday’s seventh inning. On the health front, Bruce is expected to be sidelined for Thursday’s game in Arizona because of discomfort in the hip and gluteus area that the veteran outfielder says has been...

Jacob deGrom’s brilliance can’t magically kickstart offense

The Mets get shut out for the sixth time this season. The Mets continued their recent streak of abysmal hitting, dropping the series finale to the Braves, 2-0 this afternoon at SunTrust Park. While the pitching remains excellent, the offensive blackout continues unabated. Rookie Mike Soroka, just back from the disabled list, started for the Mets and kept the Mets hitless into the top of the seventh inning. This is Soroka’s second start against the Mets, and he flummoxed the lineup for the second straight time. Aside from a walk to Jay Bruce in the top of the second, Soroka...
