Nelson Cruz's playing time for 07'?

Postby Hitdogman » Mon Aug 14, 2006 2:45 pm

With none of the Texas outfielder's currently being signed past 06', what are the chances of Nelson Cruz taking over right field full time for the Rangers next year?

I looked at his minor league stats over the past three years and he does look good with an OPS in the mid 900's with 26 HR's& 16 SB's in 04', 27 HR's and 19 SB's in 05 and 20 HR's and 17 SB's in AAA this year.

I also read he has a plus arm. I've got to think that Texas will give him a shot.

Showalter acted like he'd get a lot of ABs when the trade happened.

Id think they'd try to sign Carlos Lee at least, but yeah i think Nelson Cruz will get a shot. There are a few teams rumored to be pursuing Lee and Matthews Jr. this offseason, so i think at best they could sign one back, leaving 2 OF spots. Cruz has potential and he may be ready in Texas' eyes.

don't get too excited by his minor league numbers, he's been older then most at every level. I don't think he will ever be a mixed league option, but possibly has a little value in AL only leagues.

I trade him for Tom Gorzelanny after he hit his homer and after Sportsline had a glowing recommendation to pick him up. ;-D
