How Some Former Cleveland Indians From 2017 Performed in Their First Season Playing Elsewhere

Jay Bruce New York Mets

The Indians never made Bruce an offer after they made a deal for him last August, and they made the right decision, as his first year back in New York with the Mets was a nightmare.

Bruce inked a three-year deal worth $39 million this offseason with New York, and for that money they got a player who played in just 94 games, hitting .223 with 9 homers and 37 RBI.

He suffered from injuries for a good part of the season, having a foot as well as hip injury that kept him on the disabled list.

In the first half Bruce hit .212 with three homers and 17 runs batted in with 24 walks and 48 strikeouts. Considering he hit 7 homers in 43 games with the Indians, the Mets got taken on this one.
