Rumor Central

Cincinnati Reds right fielder Jay Bruce could be headed west, where he would give the Seattle Mariners' corner outfield spots a much-needed boost.

Jerry Crasnick's take: 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.
