On Sunday, a Spanish report reported that outfielder Nelson Cruz and the Seattle Mariners were close to signing a deal. On Saturday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today tweeted this:
Could we see another big free agent head northwest? It's possible. For those of you who would like the article roughly translated, here you go:
The Seattle Mariners are still one of the busiest in the winter in all MLB teams, and now want to Nelson Cruz in his right.
How true is the article? It's hard to know. It could be a false-alarm, or could be something that could tell us the answer of the Nelson Cruz sweepstakes. However, keep caution and keep your eyes peeled because Cruz could be headed to the Seattle Mariners.
