Free agent right-fielder Jay Bruce is expected to “draw interest” from the Toronto Blue Jays this off-season, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Cafardo writes that the Blue Jays also pursued Bruce, a left-handed power bat, during this past season. Bruce began 2017 with the New York Mets but was traded to the Cleveland Indians in August. The 30-year-old hit .254/.324/.508 with 36 home runs and 101 RBI in 146 total games during the season. He has averaged 28 homers per season over his 10-year MLB career. The Texas native made $13 million in 2017 and is coming off a six-year, $51-million deal.
