Jay Bruce arrives, plus more tidbits

In case you hadn't noticed ...

The Reds are calling up top prospect Jay Bruce on Tuesday. He was hitting .364 with 10 homers in 49 games in Triple-A. You already put him on your bench like I told you to, right?

Lance Berkman stole his 10th base of the season Sunday. That's a new career high, in what could be a season of them for Mr. Berkman.

B.J. Upton has just three homers, none since his annual shoulder dislocation on April 1. Bossman Junior's legs are fine though, as he's on pace for more than 40 steals. He's also still hitting over .300.

Darrell Rasner has a 1.80 ERA for the Yankees in four starts (3-1). Who needs Phil Hughes anyway?

Kevin Kouzmanoff is hitting .309 with five homers in May. This after a .259, two-homer April.

Rafael Soriano and John Smoltz could both rejoin the Braves' bullpen some time during Atlanta's upcoming road trip. And Mike Gonzalez might also be only a couple weeks away from a return, too. First one back gets the saves.

Bartolo Colon is now 2-0 for the Boston Red Sox. Yes, THAT Bartolo Colon. He hasn't burst yet, folks.
