Bruce homers way into Reds' record book

Jay Bruce has gone deep in five consecutive games, which ties Cincinnati's franchise record, ESPN Stats & Info notes. This year marks his sixth season with at least 25 HR, tying him for fourth-most in franchise history behind Frank Robinson (9), Johnny Bench (8) and Adam Dunn (7).

The Seattle Mariners are among the teams that have expressed interest in Cincinnati's Jay Bruce, who is likely to be on the move by Monday's trade deadline. Seattle has received middling production from Seth Smith, Nori Aoki and Franklin Gutierrez at the corner outfield spots this season, and Bruce would provide a major upgrade in 2017. He has a $13 million club option next season.

Jay Bruce smacks go-ahead home run (0:18)

Jay Bruce continues to hit home runs and his trade value continues to go up. His 25th home run proved to be the winning run in the Reds' 2-1 win over the slumping Giants. Bruce has always had a big home/road split, but he's hitting everywhere right now, which should make him an attractive option to the Dodgers, Mariners, Giants or Indians.

Small chance Reds trade Joey Votto

Votto is included here because his contract makes him difficult to trade, but none of the other Reds veterans should be untouchable, David Schoenfield writes. Untouchable players for all 30 teams
