Bruce to miss a month

The Reds announced that right fielder Jay Bruce will likely miss the next month after he had arthroscopic surgery on Monday to repair torn meniscus cartilage in his left knee.

Dr. Tim Kremchek, the Reds’ medical director performed the operation.

“He said everything went well,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. “It went as expected and the surgery was routine.”

Bruce will be placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, but the corresponding roster move was not revealed.

In 30 games this season, Bruce is batting .216 with three home runs, 14 RBIs and a .352 on-base percentage. The exact detail about how Bruce was injured remain murky.

“I think it’s something he’s had for a while. It inflamed on him,” Jocketty said. “I’m sure he did it playing but we don’t know when.”

*Also: OF Roger Bernadina cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Louisville.

Is Chapman starting Monday, or Tuesday (as I’ve read) for the Louisville Bats?

In the AL, the player that leads the league in BA with .349, also leads the league in OBP at a .482 clip. Some guy named Choo.

I don’t know what that pingback was all about but yeah we miss choo but no he wasn’t worth what he signed for either. That is one contract that they will be eating for a while. Sadly we have Votto and Phillips that we’ll be struggling with for years to come.

I dont mind the Votto contract. I will never understand the Phillips contract.

I have a hard time understanding some fans. On one hand they will complain that the team does not spend money, and then when the team does spend money they complain that they spent too much money. The reality of where Baseball has gotten is if you want to sign good players you need to overpay especially in the form of years, cause if you don’t someone else will. In the same respect it is hard to go out an sign new players without overpaying in money and years. For a team like the Reds they are limited on the number of big contracts they can sign, which means when they make those choices they must live with them.

Very well said.

It’s a tough call. I liked it when they signed Votto and Phillips. I didn’t really like Bailey’s contract . I think Bailey has great stuff when he’s on but those times are few and far between. He’s an average pitcher won/loss wise.
