Jay Bruce played in 43 of the Indians' final 50 games in 2017 and the Tribe won 41 of those contests.

With slugger Yoenis Cespedes coming off a hamstring injury in left, the Mets plan to have their top three outfielders from a year ago back intact.

The New York Mets landed one now-former member of the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday when they signed free agent outfielder Jay Bruce and according to Fan Rag Sports' Jon Heyman, came close to adding another.

Conforto hit 27 home runs last season and made his first career All-Star team before suffering a dislocated shoulder in August and undergoing surgery to fix a torn posterior capsule.

Bruce's presence provides some insurance in case Conforto isn't ready at the beginning of the season. Bruce's deal is for three years, $39 million, The Post's Mike Puma confirmed.

Back in December 20, ESPN reported that they Giants wanted to sign Bruce but were not willing to go beyond a three-year deal. NY picked up Bruce's $13 million option last offseason but immediately began to shop him around.

Bruce's contract is the largest paid out to a free agent outfielder thus far this offseason, but J.D. Martinez and Lorenzo Cain are both expected to command more significant contracts.

Bruce is set to rejoin the Mets after spending parts of the past two seasons in NY prior to being traded to the Indians in August of 2017.

Bruce is a.249 career hitter with 277 homers and 838 RBIs in 10 big league seasons.
