If it feels like Jay Bruce has been on the trade market forever, it’s because he has been. The never-ending “will the Reds trade Bruce?” chatter might finally be coming to a close, however.
Cincinnati’s All-Star outfielder is drawing interest from several contenders as Monday’s non-waiver trade deadline approaches. Chief among those teams: The Los Angeles Dodgers.
L.A. has been looking for a reason to move on from Yasiel Puig, and it seems adding Bruce — a left-handed power hitter — is as good a reason as any.
But the Reds don’t appear to be interested in Puig (or they want more than the Dodgers are willing to offer), which would explain the need for a third team.
Except the Tampa Bay Rays probably aren’t the third team, according to some reports.
So where else could Bruce land?
In other words, pull some team’s name out of a hat. You might just pick the winner of the Jay Bruce Sweepstakes.
