Jay Bruce Agrees to Three-Year Deal to Return to Mets

Bruce previously played with the Cincinnati Reds from 2008-2016, the Mets from 2016-2017, and the Indians to close out the 2017 season. Bruce is a career.249 hitter with 277 home runs.

Bruce, 30, played in 146 games last season with the New York Mets and the Cleveland Indians.

Struggling after coming to NY at the 2016 trade deadline, Bruce not only proved that he could play in NY in 2017, but he basically carried the Mets' injury-plagued lineup.

The deal Bruce is getting from the Mets is for three years and $39 million, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

But with free agency throughout the industry moving at a glacial pace, team officials remain in no hurry to make acquisitions, preferring instead to let the laws of supply and demand dictate their moves.

The Indians acquired Bruce from the Mets on August 9, one day after left fielder Michael Brantley suffered a sprained left ankle, for Lake County Captains relief pitcher Ryder Ryan.

Bruce gives the Mets some insurance in the outfield and in the lineup as Michael Conforto recovers from surgery to fix a torn capsule in his left shoulder.

In a slow-developing market around the majors this offseason, Bruce's deal would be the third-largest given to a free agent so far.

Bruce's return offers the Mets insurance on multiple fronts.

I know people don't like bringing back players from teams that failed, but Addison Reed was arguably the best Mets reliever over the past couple of seasons, so if he can be brought back, that should be a no-brainer. Bruce's deal also includes a partial no-trade clause.

After being sent to Cleveland, however, Bruce said he enjoyed his time in NY and was open to coming back.

After the trade, Bruce hit.248 with 7 HR and 26 RBI in 43 regular season games.

Though Defensive Runs Saved like Bruce in his 2017 stint with the Mets, he still likely profiles as a below-average to well-below-average defender in right field, notably in terms of range.
