Report: Jay Bruce trade on hold

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The three-team trade that would send Reds outfielder Jay Bruce to Toronto has unraveled and could be off for good.

Trade rumors took a turn Monday night after the deal appeared to stall because of medical issues with a Blue Jays minor league player, FOX Sports MLB reporter Ken Rosenthal tweeted Tuesday.

The deal would have sent Bruce to the Blue Jays, Toronto outfielder Michael Saunders to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and two minor league players to Cincinnati, MLB insiders indicated. 

The rumors didn’t stop Bruce from practicing with his Reds teammates in Arizona Tuesday.

"I will not let myself and my situation be a distraction... it's not the high road, it's the honest road," Bruce told reporters at Spring training.

He said he hopes the matter is resolved in a timely manner.

Manage Bryan Price said Bruce is handling the trade rumors like a “true pro.” The team has not said anything else about the deal.

If traded, Bruce would be the latest in a string of veteran departures that has included Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Marlon Byrd, Todd Frazier and Aroldis Chapman.
