March 2013 - Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is congratulated after hitting a spring training home run.
The Reds’ new manager, Bryan Price, says he plans to move Bruce into the cleanup spot, at least against right-handed starters. The old manager, Dusty Baker, had been reluctant to bat Votto and Bruce back to back because they’re both lefties.
