Outfielder/DH Nelson Cruz reportedly has a new home. Cruz signed a four year, $57 million contract with the Seattle Mariners.
In 2014, Cruz led the AL in HRs with 40 and drove in a career high 108 runs in his lone season with the Baltimore Orioles and was a crucial factor in their first AL East title since 1997. Prior to this season, Cruz had spent nearly his entire MLB career with the Texas Rangers playing with two AL pennant winning teams in 2010 and 2011 and earned the ALCS MVP in 2011. His tenure in Texas came to controversial end in 2013 when he was suspended for 50 games for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.
