Cincinnati's slugging right fielder Jay Bruce finished No. 10 in the National League MVP voting in 2013, coming in right after Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez and just before Atlanta's Craig Kimbrel.

Bruce, who turns 27 next week, will have to beat some familiar faces (Andrew McCutchen, Joey Votto and Paul Goldschmidt, just to name a few) for any chance to win the award this season, but one ESPN expert thinks that things could all come together for Cincinnati's veteran outfielder.
