Mets bring back Jay Bruce

In 153 games with the Mets Bruce blasted 37 home runs and knocked in 94 runs establishing himself as a consistent presence in the Mets lineup. However, he rebounded last season to club 29 homers in 103 games for NY.

Bruce spent 153 games with the Mets between 2016 and 2017 after the Mets acquired him from the Reds and before NY dealt him to the Indians last August.

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. He has batted.250/.333/.538 in 15 postseason games, has 13 hits, three doubles, four homers, and 10 RBI.

The biggest victor of this deal is Sandy Alderson who not only got a great player back in the organization, but was able to bring him back for a reasonable cost and more importantly a short three-year deal that will not handicap the organization in the long-term.

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

Bruce is a.249 career hitter with 277 homers and 838 RBIs in 10 big league seasons.

According to a source, the Mets are also interested in reuniting with free agent reliever Addison Reed.

Since late last season, the Mets had signaled that their payroll would go down from their team-record $155 million on opening day of the 2017 season.

With spring training five weeks away and some players admittedly beginning to get nervous about their ever-nearer futures, teams are able to negotiate more team friendly deals.

They know what they are getting in Bruce. Bruce came over to the Mets in a deadline deal with the Reds in 2016, and then was traded from NY to Cleveland when the Mets fell out of contention last summer. NY picked up Bruce's $13 million option last offseason but immediately began to shop him around.

The Mets had mulled holding onto Bruce and giving him a qualifying offer, but gambled and sent him to Cleveland for right-handed pitching prospect Ryder Ryan, a converted third baseman. Bruce had a WAR of 2.9 during this season.
