Jay Bruce is back with the Mets

In a slow off-season for free agents, the Mets were always interested in re-signing Bruce, and they moved aggressively on Wednesday to complete the deal.

Bruce has played with just three teams during his 10-year career.

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. Bruce spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Reds.

As the roster stands, the Indians' opening day outfield would be Brantley in left, Bradley Zimmer in center field and Lonnie Chisenhall in right.

Bruce is a 3-time All-Star making the team in 2011, 2012, and 2016. During his rookie year in 2008, Bruce finished fifth in National League Rookie of the Year voting that was won by Cubs rookie Geovany Soto. Bruce finished 10th in NL MVP voting in both 2012 and 2013 before a awful 2014 season and sub-par 2015 campaign, but he has bounced back with two productive offensive seasons since. In 2012, the NL MVP was Giants catcher Buster Posey and in 2013, the NL MVP was Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen. The Mets went on to lost 92 games while he helped the Indians to a Game 5 in the American League Division Series. All together Bruce has played in five postseason series.

Jay Bruce and his proven bat are headed back to the New York Mets. He hit. 248 with seven home runs and 26 RBI.

A career outfielder, the Mets have other plans for the power-hitter.
