Jay Bruce (hamstring) on Phillies' bench Sunday afternoon

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Jay Bruce (hamstring) is not starting in Sunday afternoon's series finale versus right-hander Mike Foltynewicz and the Atlanta Braves.

What It Means:

Bruce was forced to leave Saturday's game due to left hamstring tightness, but the Phillies don't think it will require a stint on the injured list. Nick Williams is starting in left field on Sunday.

Bruce has gone 12-for-39 (.308) with 5 home runs, 2 doubles, 13 RBI, and 9 runs scored in 11 games for the Phillies.
