Bruce is NL Player of the Week
From my colleague Joey Nowak:
Reds right fielder Jay Bruce, who led the Majors in slugging and total bases last week, was named the National League’s Player of the Week, Major League Baseball announced on Monday afternoon.
Bruce tallied 24 total bases and a 1.143 slugging percentage while also tying for the Major League lead with four home runs. He was second in the NL with 10 RBIs and a .542 on-base percentage on the week.
It is Bruce’s fourth career Player of the Week honor, having won once in 2010 and twice last year (most recently Aug. 15, 2011)
