The 60-51 Indians have traded for Jay Bruce. The right fielder has been batting .256 with the New York Mets. He has also been slugging for 29 homers and 75 RBIs. The Indians will take his contract, but it is still a great move for the Indians as they add power to their lineup.
Sources say the Mets get pitching prospect, Ryder Ryan and cash from Indians. Ryan has a 3-4 record with a 4.79 ERA in the minors.
