Reds Sign Jay Bruce to 6 year 51 million extension

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN is reporting the Jay Bruce will sign a 6 year 51 million extension with the Reds. The extension includes an option for a 7th year which would bring the total value of the deal to 63 million. This allows the Reds to avoid salary arbitration with Bruce in February. At just 23 Bruce seems poised to improve for the foreseeable future.  This has the looks of a good deal for both Bruce and the Reds. Now the Reds will likely turn their attention to signing Joey Votto to a long-term extension.
