Jay Bruce announces retirement from baseball

1B/OF Jay Bruce will retire from baseball following Sunday's game against the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

After 14 seasons in the majors, Bruce decided to hang up his cleats on Sunday. “I’ve decided to make the very difficult decision to retire from baseball,” said Bruce. He slashed .244/.314/.467 with 319 homers and 951 RBI in 1,650 career games with the Reds/Mets/Indians/Mariners/Phillies and Yankees. “Every stop I made throughout these 14 seasons were special, and my family and I are appreciative of all the help and hospitality along the way. I’ve always loved baseball and will be a fan for life.”

Jay Bruce expected to see less playing time moving forward

Yankees manager Aaron Boone says DJ LeMahieu and Rougned Odor will primarily play first base and second base, respectively, moving forward.

Fantasy Impact

This likely spells the end for Jay Bruce, who made the Opening Day roster to fill in for Luke Voit (knee). However, Bruce has struggled mightily so far, and it's fair to wonder how much he has left in the tank as a major league hitter.

Jay Bruce continues to struggle

Jay Bruce went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Wednesday's walk-off loss to the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Bruce is just 4-for-34 to begin the season. Primarily filling in at first base for Luke Voit (knee), it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Yankees make a change soon.

Jay Bruce hits a solo homer in win on Tuesday

Jay Bruce went 1-for-3 at the plate with a solo home run, a walk and another run scored during Tuesday's win over Baltimore by a 7-2 score.

Fantasy Impact

This was the first homer of the season and first as a Yankee for Bruce. The veteran slugger has been serving as the starting first baseman to begin the season with Luke Voit nursing a knee injury. But once Voit is back, Bruce will move to a bench role and is only worth a short time add in deeper fantasy leagues.

Jay Bruce playing 1B and batting 8th for the Yankees on Opening Day

Jay Bruce will start at 1B and bat 8th for the Yankees on Thursday when they face the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Bruce will be starting in place of the injured Luke Voit, who went down with a knee injury late in spring training. Bruce struggled throughout the spring, slashing just .206/.289/.441 with 2 HRs. He'll face lefty Hyun Jin Ryu on Opening Day.
