Jay Bruce returning to Mets on three-year deal, reports say

Free-agent outfielder Jay Bruce agreed to a three-year, $39 million deal with the New York Mets on Wednesday night, marking a return to Queens for one of the most consistent left-handed power hitters, a source familiar with the agreement told Yahoo Sports. After falling out of playoff contention, NY traded him to the AL Central champions on August 9 for minor league pitcher Ryder Ryan.

Bruce was instrumental to Cleveland's postseason run with seven home runs and 26 RBIs for the Indians down the stretch including an additional two home runs and 4 RBIs in the ALDS against the Yankees.

The Mets initially acquired Bruce from Cincinnati for second baseman? Bruce had a WAR of 2.9 during this season. The rightfielder played 153 games with the Mets and had a slash of.245/.313/.482 to go along with 37 home runs and 94 RBIs.

It looks like big-hitting outfielder Jay Bruce is on his way back to Flushing. "I still believe that, had the injuries not taken over". Although the Mets have said his rehab is going well, it's questionable whether he'll be ready by Opening Day. Santana's three-year, $60 million deal with the Phillies is the largest. Though Mike Moustakas' name had surfaced in chatter last week, the Mets don't view the free-agent third baseman as a realistic possibility.

OJ Simpson pinned down: Are you Khloe Kardashian's poppa?
In season 7 of the family reality show, she refused to take a DNA test telling her mum: "Seriously, my dad is Robert Kardashian ". In 2013 Simpson's ex-manager Norman Pardo told InTouch Weekly he believed OJ was Khloe's real dad.

NY began the year with great expectations that were quickly derailed by long-term injuries to Syndergaard, Cespedes and others.

This much is clear: The focus will stay on the lineup, with last month's addition of free-agent reliever Anthony Swarzak likely to stand as the only notable offseason pitching acquisition. In 2012, the NL MVP was Giants catcher Buster Posey and in 2013, the NL MVP was Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen.

Jose Reyes is still a free agent, so that could end up being yet another reunion for the suddenly active Mets.
