Bruce can still launch them out of the stadium, and the Phillies are hoping he’ll do just that in Phillies pinstripes

The trade news is official, the Phillies have obtained the services of Jay Bruce. I remember Bruce the most when he was with Cincinnati, he was a part of the Reds when they really hit a log of HR and drove in a lot of RBI. That of course was the best part of Jay’s career so far.

The New York Mets signed him a few years ago he didn’t do too much in 50 games in 2016 with the Mets he hit 8 HR and had 19 RBI, the Mets sent him packing, then hired him back in ’17, he banged out 29 HR and hit 75 RBI but had 102 strikeouts, at times the Met fans cried quite a lot about signing Bruce.

Apparently, the Mariners are paying most of his salary and sending him off to Philadelphia which is odd. Bruce has 14 HR on the season so far, so he’s still a long ball threat. Will he help the Phils, or end up hurting them if he can’t produce too much. We’ll see shortly as he is reporting to the Phils and may even be in uniform for the last game of the series in LA.
