Per ESPN: ;-D

With Corey Patterson batting .201, Ken Griffey Jr. .251 and Adam Dunn .252, the Cincinnati Reds are looking for some outfield help. They'll start in their own backyard.

The team announced on Monday that it is planning to call up highly touted prospect Jay Bruce before Tuesday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Bruce was hitting .364 with 10 home runs and 37 RBIs in 49 games at Triple-A Louisville. He had also stolen eight bases.

The Reds chose Bruce, 21, with the 12th overall pick in the 2005 draft. Last season, he was named the Reds minor league player of the year after hitting a combined .319 with 26 homers and 89 RBIs between Class-A Sarasota, Double-A Chattanooga and Louisville.

Patterson went 0-for-8 in the Reds' 18-inning loss to the San Diego Padres on Sunday and has three hits in his last 34 at-bats.

Bruce started out fast and furious but now seems to be in a funk. Those K's are starting to rack up in his last 8 games:
32 AB, 4 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 0 RBI, 0 SB, 13 K, 3 BB

Obviously still very talented and this might be a blip on the radar but he was K'ing at an alarming rate at AAA so definitely keep that in mind.

Of course it's a little disconcerting, but I don't think the Reds will make a move. They've committed to the youth movement and he doesn't have anything to prove in AAA. He's going to be learning on the job most likely since the Reds aren't going anywhere (last place in the Central.)

I've already dropped him in a 12 team mixed league where I was already fairly strong in the OF and picked up someone for help elsewhere.
