With Bruce back in the fold, the Mets' 2018 starting outfield is likely to consist of Yoenis Cespedes in left field, Michael Conforto in center and Bruce in right. The deal is pending a physical.

In 153 games with the Mets Bruce blasted 37 home runs and knocked in 94 runs establishing himself as a consistent presence in the Mets lineup.

The president later added that any discussions with North Korea would be accompanied by unspecified conditions. But it was not clear how his remarks fit with his self-described policy of "maximum pressure" on Pyongyang.

Bruce also gives the Mets another option at first base, which apparently is needed given their insecurities surrounding youngster Dominic Smith.

Baseball's hot stove has functioned more as a lukewarm cooktop this offseason, but on Wednesday evening, fans were treated to a nugget of significant free agent news. Bruce's deal is for three years, $39 million, The Post's Mike Puma confirmed. He was a three-time All-Star, including in 2016, the year in which he was traded to the Mets. However, he rebounded last season to club 29 homers in 103 games for NY. By the summer, general manager Sandy Alderson had traded away several pending free agents - Bruce among them - in an effort to shed payroll and acquire young arms.

The Mets dealt Bruce to the Indians on August 9th in exchange for minor league pitcher Ryder Ryan.
