Jay Bruce on being traded by the Mets again: ‘I wish everybody there the best’

Former Mets outfielder Jay Bruce said he wasn’t as surprised at being traded for the third time in the past two and a half years.

“Honestly, it’s just another trade now,” Bruce said, according to the New York Post’s Mike Puma, after he was included in the seven-player blockbuster trade that brought Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz to New York. “The third trade doesn’t hold quite the shock as the first couple do.”

The Mets dealt Bruce, Anthony Swarzak and three prospects—OF Jarred Kelenic and RHPs Justin Dunn and Gerson Bautista—to the Mariners for Diaz, the 24-year-old All-Star closer and Cano, the veteran second baseman who has five years remaining on his 10-year deal.

At what point does Jay Bruce officially become the Player To Be Named Later?
