FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: ORIOLES INK OUTFIELDER NELSON CRUZ TO A ONE-YEAR DEAL FOR $8 MILLION

                                                       

Well at least one Biogenesis free agent didn't get paid.  The Baltimore Orioles officially signed outfielder Nelson Cruz on Saturday to a one-year deal for $8 million.  This just a few days after the Orioles waited out the market and signed SP Ubaldo Jimenez to a four-year contract worth $48 million.  Cruz is slated for DH duty for the Orioles and will likely bat either fifth or sixth in the order.

Analysis:  Same story for Cruz who will get a bunch of RBI opportunities and hit between 25-30 home runs.  His runs, steals, and average are all shaky to negative so don't buy him as anything more than a low end outfielder 2 or at best an outfielder 3.
