Detroit — Nelson Cruz?
Don’t hold your breath. He’s not going to be a Tiger.
Dave Dombrowski, the Tigers president and general manager, was asked Saturday at TigerFest about the Cruz rumors. And he shot them down.
“We like the way the team looks,” he said. “I would be surprised if we made any major moves.”
And signing Cruz as a free agent when you already have two candidates to play left field, Andy Dirks and Rajai Davis — the latter of whom signed as a free agent for $5 million a year, for two years — would be a major move.
