Nelson Cruz said Friday that while his agent and the Orioles have had extension talks after the All-Star break, they haven't been serious.
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported earlier Friday that the two sides were both interested in a long-term deal, but it doesn't sound terribly likely that anything will get done before the end of the season. Cruz leads all of baseball with 34 homers this season after having to settle for a one-year, $8 million deal at the beginning of spring training. Aug 29 - 3:27 PM
