Mariners signed OF Nelson Cruz to a four-year, $57 million contract.
As first reported Monday by Jancen Pujols of Dominican newspaper El Caribe. The Mariners fell short of a postseason berth in 2014 because of lackluster offensive performance, so they've bucked up here in the hope that Cruz can provide a significant upgrade. The 34-year-old was terrific this past season in Baltimore, batting .271/.333/.525 with 40 home runs and 108 RBI in 159 games. The power will likely drop off in Seattle, but he should maintain good fantasy value hitting behind Robinson Cano. Dec 4 - 12:17 PM
