Mets Rumors: Mets Trade Options Dwindling For Jay BruceThe New York Mets have been trying to unload salary and glut from the outfield. Jay Bruce has been the option discussed and the teams the Mets have been trying to trade him to have been dwindling.
Now that the Blue Jays have re-signed Jose Bautista and the Phillies have signed Michael Saunders, that can eliminate these two teams from acquiring Bruce.
The Orioles, another team the Mets have been discussing a Bruce swap have signed outfielder Seth Smith and are looking to add a possibility of Mark Trumbo to the mix, so they do not look to be a possible destination.
That leaves the Mets with two options, the Giants, and Rangers. The Giants are looking to add some power and the Rangers have been in talks with the Mets over Bruce. Rumors have been floating that the Rangers may be a taker for Trumbo.
The Mets may need to eat some salary, but that is not what the Mets intentions are. The Mets are looking for two prospects to obtain Bruce according to reports, but his $13 million dollar salary has been a roadblock for the Mets.
