LUIS CRUZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

STICK-TO-IT-IVENESS

Manny Machado makes great throw after bobble

I would tell you that Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado’s amazing throw to first base to throw out Luis Cruz reminded me of Brooks Robinson, but I would be lying, since I never saw Brooks Robinson play. That’s what all the old guys on Twitter were saying. Nevertheless, it is a spectactular play: Yes, had Machado fielded it cleanly it would have been a normal groundout...

Manny Machado throws out Yankees' Cruz from another time zone

The Orioles' Manny Machado made what might be the defensive play of the year when he bobbled a hard ground ball from the Yankees' Luis Cruz, picked it up about 10 yards in foul territory and rifled the ball to first base for the out. Machado, the 21-year-old Orioles' third baseman — who was just named to the AL All-Star squad — proved why he should be a player to...

Dodgers setup Luis Cruz for a phantom DL stint because they can’t risk losing him or something

Seemingly out of nowhere, Dodgers third baseman/shortstop Luis Cruz has bone spurs in his throwing elbow. Dodgers infielder Luis Cruz said he was available to play Sunday after being unavailable Saturday night because of a bone spur flare-up in his right elbow. Cruz said he has three spurs in his throwing elbow, and they occasionally pinch a nerve. “Since I was 11, I can’t straighten...

Okay, so Luis Cruz has been amazingly terrible this year, but why?

Luis Cruz has been … not-so-good in 2013. Okay, he’s been absolutely atrocious. Just terrible. Mike Petriello at Mike Scioscia’s Tragic Illness has gone through all the statistical hoops to show exactly how bad Cruz has been in 2013 (go read it, even I didn’t realize how terrible he’s been). Hint: It’s bad. 2013 lowest wOBA, min 50 PA 5. Dustin Ackley, .174 4. Clint Barmes...

Dodgers Injury News: Luis Cruz, Tony Gwynn Jr.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are human after all.  The team, built like an All-Star team designed to dominate the league all the way to the world series, could easily be mistaken for something more than human.  They have so much talent, it's easy to forget these are normal ball players.  As proven yesterday by Luis Cruz's and Tony Gwynn Jr.'s absences. The two players...

Luis Cruz isn't the answer at third base, but there are few alternatives

If only Adrian Beltre was a free agent this winter... Luis Cruz was a nice story. He really was. But a "nice story" isn't good enough to be a starting third baseman in Major League Baseball. Cruz, 28, got a chance to play this season and took advantage of it. He hit .297/.322/.431 in 78 games. He had surprising pop, hitting six home runs and 20 doubles (tied...

Dodgers' Cruz just keeps cruising in clutch

When the Los Angeles Dodgers promoted Luis Cruz on July 2, not much was expected. After all, the 28-year-old journeyman with 4,891 minor league plate appearances hadn't played in the majors since 2010. Cruz was expected to provide the club a reserve infielder who could play multiple positions and a true backup shortstop to Dee Gordon. But when Gordon dislocated his thumb two...
