Jay Bruce is Your National League Player of the Week
How about Jay Bruce, huh? He’s your NL Player of the Week:
Jay Bruce has been on the Phillies for one week. It was one very good week.

I know it’s written on the graphic, but those numbers bear repeating:
- six games
- .381 average
- four home runs
- 11 RBI
- six runs scored
- 1.048 slugging percentage
Bruce currently has a 1.429 OP, which makes me laugh.
Coggin Toboggan informs me that Bruce is the first Phillie since Carlos Ruiz in 2014 to win NL Player of the Week. He is also the first Phillie to win a weekly award during his first seven days with the club since Paul Byrd in 1998.
Now you know.
And knowing is half the battle.
