The Giants traded for Evan Longoria on Wednesday morning.

The Giants want Jay Bruce, in addition to Evan Longoria, but may not be willing to go beyond three years in an offer for him.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) December 20, 2017
Bruce will turn 31 years old in April.
He began the 2017 season with the Mets -- hitting .256 with 29 home runs and 75 RBI in 2013 games.
Bruce was traded to Cleveland in August, and hit .248 with seven home runs and 26 RBI over 43 games.
He hit two home runs against the Yankees in the ALDS.
Bruce played the first eight plus seasons of his career in Cincinnati, and was an All-Star three times (2011, 2012, 2016).
Shrewd move by #SFGiants: They get All Star 3B in Evan Longoria for OF Denard Span, 3B Christian Arroyo and prospects Stephen Woods and Matt Krook. The #Rays will also pay part of Longoria's salary each year. This gives Giants financial flexibility to sign Jay Bruce or other OF— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) December 20, 2017
