Mets give Lucas Duda insurance policy a test drive at first base | New York Post

Bruce was tested twice against the Astros. In the second inning, Wilmer Flores bounced a throw from third base that Bruce scooped to record the final out. In the fourth, Bruce fielded a grounder and flipped to Jacob deGrom covering the bag for the final out. On that play, Bruce hesitated on his flip — a brief miscommunication — before getting the ball to deGrom.

“You’ve got to get the ball to Jake a little quicker,” Collins said. “But I saw stuff [Bruce] can learn and thought he handled himself well.”
