Jay Bruce Newsbeat

Reds’ Jay Bruce, Joey Votto working on bunting this spring

It’s all about the shift.

It’s hard not to notice all the real estate on the left side of the infield when Jay Bruce comes up to bat. Most teams employ an extreme shift with Bruce at the plate, moving the second baseman into short right field, the shortstop behind the bag and the third baseman at the normal shortstop position.

Sources: Jay Bruce trade to Blue Jays unravels - Yahoo Sports

The Cincinnati Reds had agreed to send Bruce to Toronto, which would have shipped outfielder Michael Saunders to the Los Angeles Angels, who would have given the Reds at least one prospect, according to multiple sources. The players, one of the sources said, had been agreed upon and the deal was contingent on a review of medical records.

It is unclear which player’s medicals snagged the deal, though Saunders played only nine games last season after injuring his knee stepping on a sprinkler head in spring training.
