Bruce's return offers the Mets insurance on multiple fronts. By the summer, general manager Sandy Alderson had traded away several pending free agents - Bruce among them - in an effort to shed payroll and acquire young arms.
Bruce will be paid $10 million in 2018, and $14.5 million in 2019 and 2020, according to one person familiar with the deal. Before being traded to the Mets in 2016, Bruce played almost nine seasons with the Reds.
Jay Bruce and his proven bat are headed back to the New York Mets. However, Bruce was dealt at the trade deadline to the Cleveland Indians for cash and pitching prospect Ryder Ryan. He hit.256 with 29 home runs and 75 RBI for the Mets last season. He also had a memorable Division Series against the Yankees, including a pair of home runs.
The slow-moving Major League Baseball free agent market finally played into the Mets favor.

"I enjoyed my time in NY", he said. There are still some glaring needs that have to be addressed before Spring Training starts, and if the organization is serious about contending, they'll have to covered.

"Seeing Conforto get hurt, man, that killed me", Bruce said back in August.
NY began the year with great expectations that were quickly derailed by long-term injuries to Syndergaard, Cespedes and others. "It was bad to see that". Though Mike Moustakas' name had surfaced in chatter last week, the Mets don't view the free-agent third baseman as a realistic possibility.
While robust for relievers, the free agent market this winter has been shockingly slow for other players. They have had talks with the Pirates about outfielder Andrew McCutchen and second baseman Josh Harrison, although Bruce's return would seem to make McCutchen less likely.
