Player Notes
Jay Bruce (calf) went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts Friday in his return to the lineup against the Phillies.

Advice: Bruce left Wednesday’s game with a right calf cramp and was forced to sit out Thursday, but he’s feeling better now. Unfortunately, he’s still mired in a miserable slump. He’s batting just .160 (13-for-81) in 22 games since being acquired by the Mets.

Advice: Bruce was pulled from Wednesday's game and sat out Thursday with a right calf cramp, but he's fine. He's in right field and batting sixth versus Adam Morgan and the Phillies.

Jay Bruce (calf) is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Cardinals.

Advice: Bruce left Wednesday's game with a right calf cramp after hitting a double in the top of the second inning. Alejandro De Aza is starting in his place at St. Louis. Manager Terry Collins has indicated that Bruce could be available off the bench.

Jay Bruce was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals due to a right calf cramp.

Advice: Bruce cramped up on a second-inning double and was subsequently pinch-run for by Alejandro De Aza. Cramps are rarely a sign of serious injury and the Mets' midseason acquisition should be back in the lineup without issue later this week.

After hitting a double in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Jay Bruce exited with an apparent injury.

Advice: Bruce was replaced by a pinch-runner Alejandro De Aza in the second inning. He might have suffered the injury while initially running out of the box. The Mets should pass along word as to the exact reason for his exit as the game progresses.

Jay Bruce went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Giants.

Advice: Bruce had a chance to play hero in the eighth inning, but he grounded into a double play to end the threat. He’s now batting .176 (12-for-68) with two homers, two doubles, and six RBI in 17 games since joining the Mets.

Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Advice: Bruce's double on Tuesday was his 23rd of the season, but just his first since joining the Mets at the trade deadline. He entered the game hitting a measly .160/.250/.280 in 50 at-bats with his new squad. Bruce is a better hitter than this -- he was slashing .265/.316/.559 with the Reds -- but the fit always felt slightly off and he has yet to pay the deadline dividends that would help the Mets to make a pennant run ala the addition of Yoenis Cespedes last summer.
