Should the Blue Jays have acquired Jay Bruce?

  Should the Blue Jays have acquired Jay Bruce? It's panic-button time, and it's still only the second week of the season. The Toronto Blue Jays have been unable to find a way to get hits, evidenced by a league-worst .190 team batting average. Not only that, but the team's four home runs are the fewest in the majors. A familiar name has four home runs all his own. That man is New York Mets outfielder Jay Bruce. Bruce - who struggled with the Mets after being acquired from the Cincinnati Reds at the 2016 trade deadline - has flourished in the early going. He's slashing .273/.385/.667 with those four home runs and more walks than strikeouts.

Yoenis Cespedes is set to undergo an MRI on his hamstring Friday after leaving Thursday’s game against the Phillies with a cramp. The Mets outfielder left the game in the top of the sixth after looking like he was having issues with his leg in the bottom of the 5th.

New York Mets leftfielder Yoenis Cespedes will undergo an MRI on his left hamstring that was injured during Thursday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The team said that Cespedes will have the MRI on Friday.

Cespedes left the game after the fifth inning and was injured while running to second base during a double play attempt by Philadelphia.

The Mets went on to lose the game 6-4, their fifth loss in their last six games.

"It's not a cramp," Cespedes said to MLB.com. "It felt like a shock. I've had this type of injury before. This time it doesn't feel as serious."

"Any time you're talking about a hamstring, it's a concern," Mets manager Terry Collins added. "When you talk about a hamstring and a guy like that, with his muscle strength, you've got to be careful."

Cespedes, who signed a four-year, $110 million deal in the off-season, is hitting .263 with six homers and 10 RBI this season.
