Jay Bruce Reportedly Traded to Indians by Mets for Ryder Ryan

Heyman | Indians acquire Jay Bruce from Mets

They again tried to deal him before last week's non-waiver trade deadline but again failed to move him.

On Wednesday night, the Cleveland Indians finalized a trade to acquire outfielder Jay Bruce from the New York Mets.

This is the second straight season that Bruce has been traded.

The unexpected twist in this Bruce trade is that the Yankees reportedly showed a lot of interest in him as well.

In return, the Mets received minor league right-handed pitcher Ryder Ryan. Cleveland will pay the $3,765,027 remaining of Bruce's salary.

The Indians' interest in Bruce had been rumored since before the July 31 trading deadline.

"The combination of the two (injuries) provided the opportunity to bring someone in like Jay", team president Chris Antonetti said.

The curious nature of the Mets' decision has left some within the Yankees organization to ponder whether or not the management of their cross-town rivals was instructed to avoid doing business with them all together, reports the New York Daily News. Yeah, I would say the Indians got the better of that deal. "There are other considerations including cost". It also cleared a spot in the lineup for the awaited call-up of the first-base prospect Dominic Smith. Cleveland took on the remainder of his $13M salary (roughly $4M) and sent the Mets a non-prospect.

"Our goal was not to save money", Alderson said.

This is a rent-a-player trade contending teams make at this time of year. That has continued to be a goal of ours. They've scored no more than two runs in six of their last eight games, and since the All-Star break they are hitting.251/.316/.412 (91 wRC+) as a team. He was having a good season after missing all by 11 games last season.

While there are still a lot of games to be played, the Yankees are in a precarious situation right now because a handful of teams are right behind them in the AL wild-card race.

The Mets could have kept Bruce, who is eligible for free agency after the season, and extended him a qualifying offer.
