The problem as I see it
Jay Bruce's fantasy value in the short term is if you can GET him at value... and as you suggest, there is a LOT of hype, and that just can't happen.

Can he be top 60 by the end of the season? Certainly. His prorated rank of 74 predicts at least 7th round value, so it is close.

But, you are exactly right... the BABIP is not proven. It means that more likely than not, we can expect him to hit in the .250s. This being said, his power is developing.

And, of the top 74 under proration, 35 of those are OFs who are ranked higher than Jay.

So, in the short term, I see him as a Mark Reynolds/Adam Dunn type of ballplayer who can kill your average... by 2015? He'll probably be one of the best in the business.

He is not high on my target lists THIS year because of the potential to bomb in the average department. If this does happen, however, this could be GREAT news to draft him much cheaply in 2012.

Jay Bruce
I have been burned the last few year drafting him higher then I should have in some leagues. Wont do it again so that means he will break out this year.

Breakout?
Many rankings have him in the top 60 overall mainly due to a couple of hot months in the 2nd half. I see a high BABIP, mediocre CR and lots of SOs. He is still very young, but is he a true breakout candidate?
