Jay Bruce returning to New York Mets

Jay Bruce is back with the Mets

Outfielder Jay Bruce, whom the New York Mets traded last season to the Cleveland Indians during the stretch run, have resigned the free-agent slugger to a three-year $39 million contract, the MLB Network is reporting.

Bruce, who turns 31 on April 3, fills a hole in the outfield and brings back some much-needed power to a Mets team trying to rebound from an injury-ravaged 70-92 season. The 30-year-old is coming off another productive season during which he hit.254/.324/.508 with 36 homers and 101 RBI in 146 games. Bruce also offers a possible option at first base if touted prospect Dominic Smith struggles again.

The market had screeched to a halt in the last week or so despite a number of big-name free agents still looking for a new home.

It looks like big-hitting outfielder Jay Bruce is on his way back to Flushing. If Conforto is not ready for the start of the 2018 season, Juan Lagares, one of the best defensive center fielders in baseball, would patrol the territory in front of the Home Run Apple at Citi Field.

Mets fans can breathe a sign of relief. He was a three-time All-Star, including in 2016, the year in which he was traded to the Mets. He slumped badly down the stretch that year until finally going on a tear during the final week of the season to help NY secure a wild card for its second consecutive playoff appearance.

NY began the year with great expectations that were quickly derailed by long-term injuries to Syndergaard, Cespedes and others.

After a frustrating offseason where it looked like the Mets front office wouldn't make the moves the fan base was craving, it appears that the patience of Sandy Alderson once again prevailed as the Mets get a bona-fide slugger that they know can handle the pressures of NY. Jerry Crasnick of ESPN was the first to report the news.
