Player Notes
Jay Bruce hit a pinch-hit home run in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

Advice: The home run, a solo shot, came in the ninth inning to make it a two-run game. It was also Bruce's 30th homer of the year but just his fifth in close to two months since joining the Mets. That cold snap has relegated him to a bench role as the club angles for a postseason berth. Perhaps Saturday's sign of life will earn him some more playing time over the season's final week-plus.

Jay Bruce is not in the Mets' lineup Friday for the fifth time in the last six games.

Advice: Bruce is hitting just .174/.252/.285 since joining the Mets and the club can't afford to keep trotting him out there in hopes that he rights the ship. Michael Conforto is in right field Friday. The Mets also have Lucas Duda at first base and Kelly Johnson at second.
