Jay Bruce told James Wagner of the New York Times that he's hoping for a 50-percent fly ball rate in 2017.
It's all about Bruce embracing his strengths. The veteran outfielder was a disappointment after coming over from the Reds last season, so he asked T. J. Barra, the Mets’ director of baseball research and development, to dig into the numbers. And the data shows that pulling the ball in the air is the optimal outcome for him. "And that’s what I do the most," said Bruce. "So why wouldn’t I work on pulling the ball in the air with efficiency?" Bruce had a 41-percent fly ball rate last season, according to FanGraphs. Despite the Mets' efforts to trade him over the winter, Bruce is expected to begin the year as the regular right fielder. Michael Conforto is likely ticketed for Triple-A Las Vegas.
