Bruce went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The blast was his 19th of the season and continued Bruce's surprising career success against Clayton Kershaw -- the slugger has three homers in 23 at-bats against the Dodgers ace. The right fielder is now slashing .343/.370/.700 with seven homers, 13 RBI and 12 runs through 17 games in June.

Bruce went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

His ninth-inning shot off Shawn Kelley was Bruce's 18th homer of the year and sixth in his last 12 games. The 30-year-old hasn't been a one-dimensional slugger over that stretch either, hitting .380 (19-for-50), but given that he's only hit above ,260 for a full season twice in his career expect him to cool off soon enough.

Bruce went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Monday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

It's his fourth homer in the last five games and 17th of the season. Bruce is also working on a nine-game hitting streak, putting together a .385/.400/.846 slash line during that stretch with five home runs, 10 RBI and eight runs, and his current .888 OPS would be a career high if he can keep it up.

Bruce is out of the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Braves, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the first day off for Bruce since May 24, and comes due to the doubleheader and the return of Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) to the lineup. Bruce is likely to be slotted back in the lineup for the second game Saturday.

Bruce hit his 14th and 15th homers of the year off the Rangers' Yu Darvish on Wednesday, driving in three in a 4-3 victory.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger is now up to 40 RBI in 54 games, and while he's still hitting only .250, the improvement he's made to his strikeout rate this year suggests his average might rise a little yet. Even if that doesn't happen, though, Bruce's 40-plus-homer pace will continue propping up his fantasy value.

Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-2 win over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Bruce's production hasn't been as dependable as it was early on. Since reaching a high point of .293 on May 2nd, Bruce is just 20 for his last 103 (.194) with four long balls. Even though he's battling through a tough stretch, Bruce will continue to find his name in the middle of the Mets lineup.

Bruce went hitless in his first five at-bats Tuesday against Milwaukee, but he came through with the game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the 12th inning.

EDGE Analysis

Along with Michael Conforto, Bruce has been doing much of the heavy lifting for the Mets' offense this season, leading the team in RBI with 35 and trailing only his aforementioned outfield mate in homers with 12. While certainly he isn't an asset in batting average, Bruce has trimmed his strikeout rate and increased his walk rate this season, but has just a .257 BABIP, so his current .251 average will probably rise a little over time.

Bruce went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a run scored and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

While the multi-hit performance was Bruce's first since May 10, the right fielder has put together a little six-game hitting streak during which he's slashing .333/.370/.708 with two homers and seven RBI.
