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.

Bruce was scratched from the starting lineup Monday against the Rockies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear what prompted Bruce's removal from the lineup at this point. Jose Bautista will enter the starting nine in his stead, hitting seventh and playing right field.

Bruce is starting in right field and hitting seventh Monday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce is hitting an anemic .183/.234/.267 in 64 plate appearances against southpaws this season, so he'll drop to seventh in the order for the first time all season with lefty Tyler Anderson toeing the rubber for the Rockies. The veteran outfielder could stick in the bottom third of the order against same-handed pitching if his struggles continue, which would likely hurt his counting stats.

Bruce (back) will start in right field and bat fifth Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce was out of the lineup the previous three games with a sore back, but had been available Saturday in a pinch-hitting capacity. While he wasn't summoned into that contest, he was cleared to rejoin the starting nine in the series finale after completing a pregame workout without incident. Like many of the Mets regulars, Bruce has endured a rough June, as he has recorded just four hits in 30 at-bats this month.

The Mets plan to hold Bruce (back) out of the lineup Saturday, though he may be available to pinch hit, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce will sit out of the lineup for the third consecutive day, but the Mets plan on him rejoining the starting nine for Sunday's series finale. Brandon Nimmo has started in right field the last two games, with Jose Bautista earning both starts in left field.

Bruce (back) is not in the lineup against Arizona on Friday.

Bruce has been playing with a sore back and will not play Thursday in Arizona, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce missed time at the beginning of the month with a back issue, though he's been able to start in the Mets' last eight games. He'll miss at least one game this time around, though there hasn't yet been any indication that he'll be heading to the disabled list. Since the start of June, Bruce is just 4-for-31, indicating that the back problem does seem to have been affecting him. Jose Bautista could see some time in the outfield while Bruce is out.
