Bruce went 1-for-5 with a solo homer and a pair of strikeouts Tuesday in San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

This was a classic stat line for the feast-or-famine slugger, though he's been doing an awful lot of feasting lately with five home runs in his last four games. Bruce's hot streak has come at the perfect time to impress potential trade deadline suitors, and there should be no shortage of teams with interest given his career-best .567 slugging percentage this season.

Bruce went 2-for-4 with a walk, a home run, a stolen base, three runs scored and four RBI in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds scored eight runs on the day and Bruce was involved in six of them, so it's clear the trade rumors swirling around his head aren't a distraction for him. The home run was his 21st of the season and third in his last five games.

Bruce went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old slugger's .538 first half SLG would be a career high if he can keep it up, and Bruce is also on pace for a career high in RBI with 63 at the All-Star break. At the very least, he's improved his trade value for the rebuilding Reds.

Bruce is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce launched home run No. 18 of the season Tuesday evening, so he'll be rewarded with a regular day off for the ensuing day game. He had started 15 straight games in right field, but will give way to Adam Duvall for the afternoon matchup against Adam Warren and the Cubs.

Bruce went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI Tuesday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The slugger's 16th blast of the year was a three-run job in the fifth inning that put the Reds ahead for good en route to an 8-2 victory. Despite being sandwiched in the middle of a bad offense, Bruce is on pace to have quite a productive year. His 55 RBI are good for second in the NL behind Colorado's Nolan Arenado, and the veteran outfield is on pace to set career highs in home runs, RBI and runs.

Bruce is not in the lineup Thursday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

It looks like a routine day off for Bruce, as the Reds go with an outfield of Adam Duvall in left, Kyle Waldrop in right and Jose Peraza in center. Bruce is hitting .273 on the year and has collected four hits over his last three games.

Bruce hit a three-run homer, his 15th, in a 1-for-4 game in Tuesday's win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce has three homers in his past nine games as his strong rebound season continues. He's on pace for 37 home runs, which would be a career high, and he's already halfway to what would be his first 30 home run season since 2013. Even though this is Bruce's ninth season, he's still just 29 and should still be in his physical peak, and he has been playing like it all year long.
