IF PHILS NEED MORE PITCHING, JAY BRUCE MAY BE A TRADE CHIP!

Says Mark Feinsand of MLB.com:

Phillies: Jay Bruce, 1B/OF/DH
Under club control through: 2020

The addition of the DH to the National League should mean more at-bats for Bruce, whose power has long been his best attribute.

Playing in the final year of his three-year, $39 million deal, Bruce will earn a prorated $5.18 million during the shortened season, most of which will be paid by the Mariners as part of last year’s trade.

He’s one of several impending free agents along with Didi Gregorius and J.T. Realmuto, though without a clear starting spot, Bruce might become a trade chip if the Phillies are in need of an arm for the pennant race.
