Update: Looks like Michael Saunders going to the Angels, and Bruce coming to Toronto.
Add in: it looks like it will be a three team deal.
Bruce is a coming up to his age 29 season. Last year he hit .226/.294/.434 with 26 home runs. Career he has a .248/.319/.462 line with 208 home runs in 8 seasons. He has played right field for most of his career. He has made the NL All-Star team twice.
I'm not a big fan and really don't see him as a replacement for Jose Bautista, if that is the plan.
Jays are said to like Jay Bruce very much. Word is, deal could be in works.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) February 22, 2016
Well, here is more news.
Source: Bruce deal, if it happens, could involve 3rd team, and that team could get Saunders from #BlueJays. Saunders earning $2.9M in 2016.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) February 23, 2016
