Slumping Bruce getting a couple days off by Dusty Baker


Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker saw his rightfielder Jay Bruce have a tough night on Thursday at the plate against the Chicago Cubs and decided a change was needed.

Bruce hit .213 in July and has not done any better by batting .200 in August. He’s hitless in his last 12 at-bats with seven strikeouts. And that means Baker will give him a rest for the next two days.

Xavier Paul started in rightfield on Friday with Justin Germano pitching. With Travis Wood, a lefty throwing on Saturday, Chris Heisey should get the start.

Even with Bruce in a slump and the Reds star player, Joey Votto out of the lineup since July 16 with a knee injury, the team is still controlling the National League’s Central Division by 2.5 over Pittsburgh and 4 games over St. Louis.

When the Cincinnati Reds acquired left-handed reliever Sean Marshall from the Chicago Cubs on December 23, fans and media felt they gave up too much talent just to rent a player for one year.

After all, the Reds gave up left-handed starter Travis Wood, outfielder Dave Sappelt and infielder Ronald Torreyes.

In the midst of Spring Training, the Reds and Marshall are trying to reach an agreement on a contract extension.

Both Marshall and Reds general manager Walt Jocketty have confirmed the two sides are trying to come up with agreeable terms.

The 29-year-old Marshall, one of the game’s best situational leftys, is signed through 2012 for $3.1 million and can become a free agent in the off-season.

In 2011, against NL Central Division rivals Milwaukee and St. Louis, Marshall recorded an ERA of 0.00 in 15 appearances covering 16.1 innings while with the Cubs.

The 6’7 reliever has a career ERA at Great American Ball Park of 2.42 in 26 innings pitched covering 26 innings.

Ondrusek was 4-4 with a 2.63 ERA in 56 games. However, in his last seven bullpen appearances has a 14.53 ERA. He was put on the DL on Tuesday, retroactive to Monday.

During this past off-season, the Cincinnati Reds had a choice, should they pick up the $11 million option on Aaron Harang’s contract or go with their younger pitchers?

Like most teams in their position, the Reds chose to keep the money and put their fortunes in Travis Wood, Homer Bailey and Edinson Volquez.

The result has not been very good for the Reds. Wood is in the minors due to inconsistency, Bailey has been on and off the disabled list but has pitched well when healthy and Volquez has been to the minors twice to correct pitch effieciency, and control problems.

The Reds also had a huge option on veteran pitcher Bronson Arroyo, who had consistently won between 12-16 games a year for the team. They decided to keep him over Harang as well.

As for Harang, he is having a comeback season in his hometown of San Diego.

The former Reds ace pitcher, who was struggling the last three years with the Reds at 18-38, has become the ace of the Padres staff. He is 9-2 and is 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA in his past nine starts.

Recently, he beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4.
