Reports came in early morning yesterday that Nelson signed a one contract with the Baltimore Orioles.
The deal is worth 8 million, performance incentives up to 750k.
Cruz rejected a qualifying offer from Texas during the offseason worth 14 million. During the offseason he was asking for 75 million over five years. Many speculated if Cruz could perform as well after serving a 50 game PED suspension. This is a smart move for the Orioles. Nothing long term and just what Chris Davis needs by his side.
My question remains will Cruz perform better or worse this upcoming season?
