The Philadelphia Phillies, looking to jumpstart Bryce Harper and a sluggish Phillies offense, have acquired professional hitter Jay Bruce from the Seattle Mariners for a prospect and cash. Bruce was three-time All-Star with the Reds and has made rounds lately as a hired gun. Bruce has 14 home runs for the M’s in 47 games and hit his 300th career home run last Friday. Bruce is in the final year of a three-year deal signed with the Mets and the Philies are only on the hook for the remaining $2.75 million for a good clubhouse guy with lots of pop still left in his bat.
