Jay Bruce returning to New York Mets

  • Jay Bruce returning to New York Mets

The Mets (70-92) will hope Bruce's power can help them improve upon their fourth-place NL East finish a year ago, and get them back into postseason contention.

Bruce hit.248 with seven home runs and 26 RBIs for the Indians, giving him season totals of 36 home runs and 101 RBIs.

NY reportedly agreed to a back-loaded deal that will pay Bruce $10 million in 2018 and $14.5 million in each of the following two seasons. But the team needs one more above average arm to really make this area one of strength. In just 18 at-bats in the postseason, Bruce hit.278 with two home runs and four RBIs. Michael Conforto (27 home runs) was the only other NY player to hit more than 20.

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.

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.

This much is clear: The focus will stay on the lineup, with last month's addition of free-agent reliever Anthony Swarzak likely to stand as the only notable offseason pitching acquisition.

It's weird to think about it this way, specially after the signing of Bruce, but if the Mets bring back Walker, and Reed, they are a better team than what they are right now and probably a better team than they were for the majority of 2017.

Jay Bruce deal with #Mets is backloaded. After falling out of playoff contention, NY traded him to the AL Central champions on August 9 for minor league pitcher Ryder Ryan. 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.

As the offseason began, Bruce was reportedly seeking a five-year contract and was linked to the Giants and Astros.
