Tigers signed RHP Nelson Cruz to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
Despite a disappointing finish, Cruz, who pitched for Detroit in 1999 and 2000, helped himself with a 3.67 ERA and a 43/8 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 IP in the Dominican Winter League. Maybe he can go back to being an adequate middle reliever. Wed, Jan 19, 2005 04:40:00 PM
