Bruce's 2017 was productive, where he slashed.254/.324/.508 while slugging 34 home runs and driving in 101 runs - with both the New York Mets and Cleveland Indians. Bruce liked the direction of the team under Mickey Callaway, their new manager. 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 was obtained by the Mets from Cincinnati for a pair of prospects on August 1, 2016.

Terms of the agreement were first reported by ESPN.
