Colome today, Nelson Cruz yesterday. One year, $13 million.

One million more than he got last year.

It's a free market (so they say). Somebody else could have offered $14 million.

Cutting a month but returning to a 154 game season is going to make for a pretty dense season.

Start looking for 6th starters!

Cruz may wanna hold off on signing just yet.  Today MLB has proposed a 154 game season with full pay for players, a month delay to the season start,  expanded playoffs again, and universal DH.  Sounds good for both sides.

You're only as old as your OPS.

Nelson Cruz (DH) - Jan. 30

Cruz and Minnesota have rekindled contract talks with the possibility of a one-year deal, The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Cruz has always had interest in returning to Minnesota, but he's been looking for a longer deal and waiting to see if the NL will use the DH in 2021. With it looking less likely that the NL will use the DH again this season, it looks like Minnesota may still be his best fit for 2021.
