Let's face it, Cruz has done little to impress over the past month. 10 R 2 HR 10 RBI 3 SB .269 in 93 AB. And he'll be 29 in July and has never played a full MLB season. Upside ... ???
Yes he has posted super digits in the minors, like 37 HR 24 SBs 99 RBI in 383 AB last year, but historically his AAA production has not translated into the big show. His #124 O-rank at Yahoo was wildly optimistic IMHO.
Kubel is sitting on WW and looking like a better option at this point.
