Latest Update The Orioles offered Nelson Cruz a three-year deal before he went into free agency.   Tue Nov, 11, 04:39 PM

Monetary terms of the offer have not been released, but the Orioles wanted to make sure they let Cruz know that he is wanted for the long haul and not just for a one-year qualifying offer. He'll get some money thrown at him this winter as his comeback was masterful, but Baltimore will make sure they stay in the running.Analyst: Howard Bender

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 has rejected the Orioles qualifying offer.
  • With power hitting at a premium in the Major Leagues these days, there was no way Nelson Cruz was going to sign the Orioles qualifying offer at $15.3 million after leading the MLB in home runs with 40. Cruz, like Melky Cabrera, had a huge season coming off his suspension for PED use. Despite his stained past, teams will likely line up to pay Cruz this offseason.Analyst: Dom Murtha

    Nelson Cruz is seeking a four-year deal for big money.
  • Of course he's seeking a long-term deal for big money. Cruz batted .271 with 40 home runs and 108 RBI after being suspended for PEDs use the year before. He was a big part of the Orioles success this year and did a fantastic job helping O's fans forget that Chris Davis was a complete bust this year. Fantasy owners would love to see him stay in Baltimore, but any hitter-friendly ballpark will do.Analyst: Howard Bender

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