Cincinnati Reds links - Seattle Mariners interested in a Jay Bruce trade

Thursday links! The only thing that may have been more prolific than Jay Bruce's ability to mash dingers over the last week has been the ability of his name to pop-up in trade rumors with the August 1st deadline barreling down on us all.  The latest team to be reportedly interested in the Cincinnati Reds RF:  the Seattle Mariners, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN (and formerly of the Cincinnati Post.) On paper, Bruce's thunderbat wouldn't provide a great boost to the Seattle outfield production, since their outfield's collective 111 wRC+ ranks as the 7th best in all of baseball....

MLB trade rumors: Indians among teams who may make run at Jay Bruce

MLB trade rumors: Indians among teams who may make run at Jay Bruce

Who is the Tigers most untouchable prospect or young player? Last week, an MLive MLB trade rumors roundup looked at the possibility of the Cleveland Indians landing catcher Jonathan Lucroy prior to this coming Monday's 4 p.m. (ET) non-waiver trade deadline. It's been quiet on that front in the past several days. Now, the American League Central-leading Indians are among the teams who could make a run at Cincinnati Reds right fielder Jay Bruce, according to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick and reported by MLB.com. With injured outfielder Michael Brantley's status iffy,...

Brad Ausmus: David Ortiz a 'great ambassador for baseball'

Brad Ausmus: David Ortiz a 'great ambassador for baseball'

Ausmus said he expects Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera to get a similar sendoff one day. BOSTON -- Every David Ortiz at-bat, home or away, has become an event. The buzz is evident even at Fenway Park, where Red Sox fans still have a few months left before saying goodbye to Ortiz for the final time. On Tuesday night, Ortiz had a thunderous three-run home run; in the ninth, with the crowd on its feet, he grounded into a double play to end the game. There has been far more of the former than the latter in 2016, as Ortiz is having one of the best seasons of his...

Jay Bruce vs. Matt Cain could get ugly

There's no hotter hitter for the Cincinnati Reds than Jay Bruce, who is 6-for-12 with four homers and 11 RBIs over his past three games and hit his 22nd and 23rd home runs of the season in Monday's 7-5 win against the Giants.

What the Cincinnati Reds can do with Jay Bruce

The Reds' RF will likely be on the move, but not necessarily just yet. The Toronto Blue Jays finalized a deal with the San Diego Padres this morning that sent Melvin Upton, Jr. and some $17 million north of the border for a prospect MLB.com ranked as the 18th best in a not strong Toronto farm system. If that's any indication of the current going rate for veteran outfield bats in the current market, the Cincinnati Reds may find themselves in a bit of a quandary for the next five days in their efforts to trade Jay Bruce. It's becoming increasingly clear that the recently successful model used...

Jay Bruce homers twice, Reds beat Giants 7-5

Jay Bruce is a dinger smashing guru. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Jay Bruce has been mashing his way through the National League for most of the entire 2016 season, but he has taken particular notice of the most recent games on the schedule in the wake of the All Star Break. Bruce dingered on Monday - twice - meaning he's launched long balls in each of the last three games, and Monday's power supply was the single biggest driving factor for the Cincinnati Reds' offense in their opener against the San Francisco Giants.  His final line:  2 for 4, 2 runs scored, 4...

Cincinnati Reds links - Aroldis Chapman traded again & more Jay Bruce rumors

Monday links! Former Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman is again in the news today, this time because the New York Yankees are in the process of trading him to the Chicago Cubs. Chapman, you'll remember, only ended up in New York in the first place after a deal that would've sent him to the Los Angeles Dodgers fell apart when he was accused of domestic violence and discharging a weapon in his own garage. That initial deal with the Dodgers reportedly included Jose Peraza, a Top 50 overall prospect who the Reds eventually picked up in the Todd Frazier trade.  However, once the details of...

Finnegan hit hard again, Reds comeback falls short 9-8

Jay Bruce stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 9th inning with two runners on base, in what could very well be his final at-bat in a Reds uniform at Great American Ballpark with the trade deadline looming. Bruce, who has always had a flair for the dramatics, hit a ball just barely …
