Mets agree to $39M, three-year deal with free agent Jay Bruce
13 January, 2018, 01:14 | Author: Laura Christensen
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 is aware the Mets expect him to play some first base this season, with Dominic Smith still trying to prove himself as an everyday player. Michael Conforto (27 home runs) was the only other NY player to hit more than 20. Michael Conforto, perhaps the brightest light of the Mets' disappointing 2017 season, may not be ready by opening day because of left shoulder surgery he had in September.
Bruce has played with just three teams during his 10-year career.
Bruce is set to rejoin the Mets after spending parts of the past two seasons in NY prior to being traded to the Indians in August of 2017. Although he's in the middle of working out of an offensive slump that began in 2016, McCutchen hit a career-high 28 home runs last season and has averaged 24 long balls in his nine years in the major leagues. He has batted.250/.333/.538 in 15 postseason games, has 13 hits, three doubles, four homers, and 10 RBI.
The lack of movement on the free agent market this winter and particularly with top slugging outfielder J.D. Martinez still out there seemingly holding up other players, however, seems to have created a buyers market in January.
They know what they are getting in Bruce. Per Heyman, the Mets and Indians had a deal in place that would send second baseman Jason Kipnis to NY, before the trade was ultimately nixed.
