Giants outfield option Jay Bruce to sign with Mets

Giants outfield option Jay Bruce to sign with Mets

Jay Bruce reached a deal with the Mets Wednesday night, giving the slugger a second turn in Queens after the Indians picked him up off waivers from the Mets last season.

Bruce spent a little more than year with the Mets after coming over in a trade from the Reds at the trade deadline in 2016.

Bruce was traded from the Mets to the Indians last season after spending parts of two seasons in NY. He put up comparable numbers in the postseason for the Indians, hitting a pair of home runs in the American League Division Series against the Yankees. The Mets were also hesitant to use Smith against left-handers last season and if they feel he's still better off against righties, Bruce can easily move to first. Their biggest player acquisition before Bruce was reliever Anthony Swarzak, who signed a two-year, $14-million deal. Bruce can spell Dominic Smith or take over for long stretches completely if the rookie fails to develop.

Rohit, Dhawan and the limits of 'current form'
The 29-year-old has played 19 Tests at home and amassed 1009 runs at an average of 33.63 with 3 tons and as many half-centuries. On nought at the time the tailender went on to get 35 runs, helping South Africa to a 40-over-par total of 286.

Bruce, popular in the Indians clubhouse during the two months he was with the Tribe, played in 43 regular-season games with the Indians. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports it is a three-year, $39 million deal.

They know what they are getting in Bruce. He was a three-time All-Star, including in 2016, the year in which he was traded to the Mets. NY picked up Bruce's $13 million option last offseason but immediately began to shop him around.

Bruce was acquired from the Mets by the Cleveland Indians on August 9 in exchange for minor league pitcher Ryder Ryan. Since the beginning of 2017, however, Bruce had been the steady engine in the Mets lineup and it's only consistency with Cespedes missing half a season with hamstring injuries.
