NELSON CRUZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cruz steps into power-hitting role with Mariners

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Few Mariners were happier to see Nelson Cruz in Seattle's clubhouse than Felix Hernandez. The Mariners' ace knows how difficult an out Cruz can be.

''He reminded me of those things,'' Cruz...

Which Seattle Mariners Breakout With Big Seasons In 2015?

Seager Busted Out In 2014, so who’s Next? I have already said on numerous occasions that it’s very unrealistic of Seattle Mariners fans to expect their shiny new DH, Nelson Cruz, to step in and hit 40 homers in 2015.  It’s NOT going to happen, and you are fooling yourself if you believe it will.  What will happen for Cruz is 25 homers or so — maybe 30 — and a batting...

Seattle Mariners: 3 Positive Things In 2015

The whole Seattle Mariners off season centers on one question: have the Mariners done enough to take the next step?  The Mariners were a surprise in 2014, surviving elimination from the playoffs until the last day of the season.  With the Oakland A’s making moves and perhaps not being as strong as they were last season, now is the time for Seattle to end that playoff draught...

Mariners start ad campaign after Nelson Cruz signing

Baltimore Orioles: Three prospects that can make an impact this year

The Baltimore Orioles find themselves two games above .500 as we head towards the end of May, 2.5 games behind the AL East leading Toronto Blue Jays, who are winners of 6 games in a row. While the Orioles already have the talent to push for a division title in 2014, a roster move like calling up one of these three players (for longer than just a week or two) could jumpstart the team...

Texas Rangers Rumors: Nelson Cruz Edition

Here we are, almost finished with January, and Nelson Cruz still remains a free agent. With the huge Mashahiro Tanaka signing by the New York Yankees passing, it is time for other notable stars to get some press attention. Let me put this out flat: I like Nelson Cruz. I don’t think he is a necessary part of this Texas Rangers team that has made some big pick-ups in the offseason...
