  • Cleveland Indians Jay Bruce answers questions after Game 1 of baseball's American League Division Series between the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians Thursday Oct. 5 2017 in Cleveland. The Indians won 4-0

Bruce, who is 30 years old, was acquired by the Mets in 2016 from the Cincinnati Reds, and was with the Mets until he was traded to the Cleveland Indians at the trade deadline last season.

Jay Bruce will return to the New York Mets after agreeing to a deal with the team, ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick reported Wednesday.

The lefty-swinging Bruce adds immediate power to the Mets' lineup. The deal is pending a physical.

He ended up hitting.278 with two home runs and four RBI in the playoffs while the Indians lost to the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series. However, with Conforto's status for opening day up in the air, it remains to be seen if the Mets feel the need to sign one more outfielder, or if they trust utility players like Matt Reynolds and T.J.

Bruce's presence provides some insurance in case Conforto isn't ready at the beginning of the season.

In a slow-developing market around the majors, Bruce's deal would be the third-largest given to a free agent so far this offseason.

The following offseason, many questioned whether the Texas native who had previously spent his entire professional career with the Reds could handle the NY spotlight.

Bruce liked the direction of the team under Mickey Callaway, their new manager. Bruce's deal also includes a partial no-trade clause. For the entire season, he batted.254 with 36 home runs.
