All-Star Jay Bruce appears to be on the move, finally, as the Cincinnati Reds will reportedly trade their power-hitting outfielder to a National League team Monday morning, according to Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports.
The report notes the Reds' trade partner isn't the Dodgers, who, along with the Mets, Indians, Rangers, and Giants, have been in pursuit of the 29-year-old right fielder.
The Mets look to be a strong possibility for Bruce, who's been pursued by the defending National League champions since they tried to acquire him at last year's deadline.
Provided the Dodgers are indeed out on Bruce, it's possible they'll refocus their efforts back to other reportedly available outfielders, such as Josh Reddick.
The Indians are believed to be pursuing Bruce, as well, especially on the heels of Sunday's failed trade for Jonathan Lucroy, the Milwaukee Brewers catcher who exercised his no-trade clause and vetoed a deal to Cleveland.
