Projected Role in 2017
Trade rumors have been swirling around Bruce’s name ever since Cespedes re-signed with the Mets earlier this offseason. Ideally, it sounds as if Bruce would be in another uniform next season, but reports indicate there isn’t a ton of interest in Bruce around the league.
Of course, that can change at any given moment.
Personally, as I wrote earlier this month, I find in very hard to believe a middle-of-the-lineup bat that’s capable of driving in 100 RBIs while hitting 30+ homers in a single season has limited value to teams around the league. Given that type of production, his $13 million salary can be seen as a bargain.
