Bruce, 30, has smacked 20 doubles and 29 home runs this season, so he could provide plenty of power for teams. He has mostly played outfield throughout his career, but the Mets also had him playing some first base this season.
Bruce is under contract to earn $13 million this season and is owed $4 million for the remainder of the year.
