Bruce (hip) will begin his rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie on Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce has been out of action since mid-June. Given the length of his absence, his rehab assignment is expected to last at least a week. He's expected to play both right field and first base while rehabbing, indicating that the Mets intend to use him at both spots once he returns.

Manager Mickey Callaway changed gears Friday and said Bruce (hip) is close to embarking upon a rehab assignment, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Callaway previously said Bruce wasn't close to starting a rehab assignment just a few days ago, per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, it looks like the outfielder will play in a minor-league game in the near future after landing on the shelf in mid-June. He will likely require a decent amount of time on a rehab assignment, so don't expect to see him back in action for the Mets for at least another couple weeks.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Tuesday that Bruce (hip) is "in a good spot" with his recovery, but the outfielder isn't close to beginning a rehab assignment, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce has been on the shelf since June 19 with the right hip strain, with the Mets relaying scant updates on his progress ever since. Prior to getting hurt, the 31-year-old was a major disappointment in the first season of the three-year, $39 million contract he signed in January, as he hit supplied a career-worst .613 OPS over 236 plate appearances. With a return to game action seemingly not imminent, it's looking likely that Bruce won't be an option for the Mets until September.

Bruce (hip) will play some first base after returning from the disabled list, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has played three games at first this season and started there 10 times last year. The move will have minimal effect on his fantasy value, though owners in most leagues can likely count on him gaining or retaining first-base eligibility next season.

Bruce (hip) is expected to start taking batting practice sometime this week, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce has been on the shelf since June 19 as he attempts to recover from a hip strain. It's good news that he's beginning to make some progress, and his status moving forward will likely be determined by how he feels after taking batting practice.

Bruce (hip) said that he's been dealing with a variation of this injury since mid-March and that he will give his body "proper time" to rest and reset, Erin Fish of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce added that he's under the impression that all of his injuries -- ranging from the hip to his back and foot -- are all inter-connected and that he will "reset his body" over the coming days. At this time, there is still timeframe for the outfielder's return, so expect him to need at least a couple weeks on the shelf.

Bruce (hip) is dealing with a strained right hip, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

With manager Mickey Callaway's announcement that "there's definitely something there," it looks as though Bruce may miss an extended period of time recovering from this injury. The Mets have yet to describe a definitive timetable but expect something to come forward by the end of this weekend.

Bruce was placed on the disabled list with a sore right hip Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce had started just one of the Mets' last five games while battling the issue. He's had a disappointing season for the Mets so far this year, hitting .212 with just three homers in 62 games. Reliever Tim Peterson was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move. Jose Bautista is likely to have an everyday role in the outfield while Bruce remains out.

Bruce was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Rockies due to hip soreness, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Monday's absence from the lineup, Bruce will have now missed four of the last five games due to his bothersome hip -- he returned for Sunday's series finale but apparently aggravated the issue. While he's hoping to avoid a trip to the disabled list, Bruce acknowledged the possibility, per Ehalt. He'll be reevaluated Tuesday.
