"I know that I'm good enough to be on the roster," Bruce said, according to Yankees Videos. "There's no question, personally, about that, in my opinion.
"... If I'm healthy, I'm a good option."
Bruce is off to a hot start for the Bronx Bombers. The veteran outfielder is 4-for-6 with a double and hit his first spring homer during the Yankees' 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday.
Bruce is competing for a roster spot on New York's bench after the left-handed hitter signed a minor-league contract last month that includes an opt-out option he can exercise on March 25.
Bruce has hit 318 homers during a solid 13-year career, but he also hasn't appeared in more than 100 games since 2017 due to injuries.
