8:50pm: A deal has been struck, according to reports from Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports and Ken Rosenthal of MLB Network. All of Bruce’s remaining salary will land on Cleveland’s books, per Passan.

8:48pm: The Indians are “working on a deal” with the Mets that would send outfielder Jay Bruce to Cleveland, according to’s Jerry Crasnick (via Twitter). It isn’t clear at the moment how far along the teams are in their discussions.

Bruce is one of the many players that have already cleared revocable waivers this month, meaning he can be freely traded. He can block deals to eight teams, reportedly including the Indians, though it seems reasonable to anticipate that Bruce would be amenable to a deal; after all, that would take away the possibility of a qualifying offer and place him on a contender down the stretch.
