The Indians acquired veteran outfielder Jay Bruce from the Mets for minor league pitcher Ryder Ryan. Cleveland agreed to pick up the roughly $4.2 million left on Bruce’s $13 million salary. Bruce is hitting .258 with 29 homers and 75 RBI this year. Bruce, a three-time All-Star, gives the Indians a corner outfielder and established bat to replace Michael Brantley, who went on the DL Monday with a sprained ankle. Lonnie Chisenhall has also been on the disabled list since early July with a strained calf.
