Though the Reds plan to play Shin-Soo Choo in center field, manager Dusty Baker said Jay Bruce has called him and offered to play the position.

"Jay asked if I wanted him to come in lighter in case Choo is better a right fielder than center fielder," Baker said. While Baker appreciated the gesture from Bruce, who has played 35 games in center during his career (compared to Choo's 10 games), the Reds believe Choo will be good enough at the position to stay there.
