Jay Bruce heads back to the Mets

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, Jay Bruce is headed back to the New York Mets. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the deal is for three years and $39 million.

Fantasy Impact

Bruce hit a combined 36 homers between New York and Cleveland last year. He posted a .832 OPS with 101 RBIs. Still just 30 years old, Bruce will likely play everyday in right field next season. He's a solid target for fantasy teams in need of power.

New York Mets interested in bringing back Jay Bruce

According the Long Island Newsday, the Mets and Bruce have expressed interest in a reunion. He could play first base, while Dominic Smith goes back to the minors.

Fantasy Impact

Bruce finished the season hitting .254 with 36 home runs and 101 RBIs. If he plays at first base, then he'll be part of a potent lineup that features Michael Conforto and Yoenis Cespesdes. However, it would make little sense if he is brought back to play the outfield as the Mets already have enough starters to play the outfield.

Jay Bruce homers once again in Game 2

Jay Bruce went 1-for-6 with a solo homer in Game 2 of the ALDS, which Cleveland won in 13 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy Impact

Bruce hit a two-run homer off Sonny Gray in the fourth inning, which gave Cleveland a 3-0 lead that they never looked back from. The 30-year-old Bruce hit 36 homers in the regular season. Game 2 of the ALDS will be played on Friday afternoon.

Jay Bruce fails to get a hit in the Indians' first loss in 22 games

Jay Bruce finished 0-for-4 as the Indians' 22-game win streak was snapped in the 4-3 loss to the Royals on Friday night. Cleveland's magic number for clinching their division is now two games.

Fantasy Impact

Despite Bruce's game-winning hit in Thursday's game, Bruce has been slumping as of late. He is hitting .174 (4-for-23) in his last seven games. Bruce and the Indians face off against RHP Jason Hammel and the Royals again on Saturday.
