Jay Bruce

With the recent call-ups of Hughes and Butler, and impending Lincecum debut, some spectacular early season performances in the low minors are going a bit unnoticed around here.  Bruce was in almost everybody's Top 15 last year after his .291/.355/.516 performance at Dayton.  Moving up a level into a pitchers' league, you might expect some early season struggles from The Boss.  Not the case.

.345/.387/.646
8 2B, 4 3B, 6 HR
Leads FSL in SLG
2nd in OPS
.379/.387/.586 vs. LHP (really his only knock last year)

With graduations and performance thus far, is it time to start talking about Bruce as a top 5 prospect?
