Latest Update Nelson Cruz repeated Wednesday that he'd like to stay with Orioles.   Wed Oct, 15, 07:51 PM

Cruz signed a one yer deal in the off-season and had a monster season hitting a league best 40 home runs and driving in 108 RBI. At 34 years old the amount of years Cruz will get should be interesting but he has certainly earned a pay raise. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   A bona fide top-tier power hitter with good size, a powerful swing and nice follow through, he also can run a little. Has the arm to play right field, but can also play left field.
Flaws:  : Is somewhat injury-prone, especially his legs/groins. Takes a huge cut and can be all-or-nothing at the plate (hitting a homer or striking out), so he'd benefit by shortening his swing at times.

    Nelson Cruz is not close to signing an extension with the Orioles at this point.
  • No word on which side is balking more, but the Orioles would serve themselves well by extending Cruz' contract. His 40 home runs and 108 RBI were a huge part of the Orioles' offense this year and the main reason they were fine without Chris Davis performing up to task. Expect an agreement to be reached at some point.Analyst: Howard Bender

    Cruz's homer power O's to ALCS
  • Cruz continues to be a constant force in the middle of the Baltimore line up. After last years scandal, many teams were wary of Cruz. The Orioles took a chance, and they are being rewarded. 40 regular season homers, and two postseason home runs later, the Orioles are smiling at their off-season transaction.Analyst: Colby Conway

    Cruz homers in Orioles win
  • He fantastic regular season just rolled right over into the postseason. Cruz finished the season with 40 home runs and 108 RBIs and will garner plenty of attention in the MVP race, though it is doubtful that he will win it. Power is his game and Cruz should provide plenty of it for Baltimore while they're alive in the postseason.Analyst: David Kerr
