Mets' slugger Jay Bruce traded to Cleveland

Mets' slugger Jay Bruce traded to Cleveland

Bruce was hitting.258 this season with 29 homes runs and an.847 OPS.

Sources said the New York Yankees were also involved in talks to acquire Bruce before the Mets traded him to Cleveland. With Lonnie Chisenhall and Michael Brantley both on the DL, Bruce will help provide some missing power from the left side of the plate. He rebounded from last year's struggles when he hit just.219 in 50 games after the Mets acquired him.

While Major League Baseball's trade deadline was July 31, a player can be dealt if he goes through waivers unclaimed. The Mets essentially wanted Bruce off the books for the remainder of the season and made a decision to do that without much else in return. Conforto is better suited for a corner spot but has shown he can play center field.

Ekaterina Makarova, Catherine Bellis, Magdalena Rybarikova and Barbora Strycova are also through to the second round. I mean, you don't say no to No. 1 in the world, right? "I was like, "Please, let me get this one" and I managed to".

Bruce was traded to the Mets from the Cincinnati Reds at the non-waiver trade deadline last season, in an effort to make a run towards a pennant. And when seeing what was given up, this trade looks great regardless. He will be assigned to the Mets' Class-A Columbia Fireflies, the team announced.

With Bruce, who had been manning first base recently, out of the picture, could this clear a path for Dominic Smith to finally join the Mets?

A 30th-round pick in the 2016 draft, Ryan has appeared in 33 games for Single-A Lake County, going 3-4 with a 4.79 ERA and 1.48 WHIP.
