Nelson Cruz a good value with Orioles

2/24/2014

New Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz moved way up in my rankings during the weekend because, well, he found employment. It’s still February, and if you’re drafting today, then it’s reasonable to select the few players without jobs, but there comes a time when even that strategy doesn’t make sense. Will Ervin Santana and Stephen Drew actually be playing baseball somewhere in a month? I don’t know. But we’re getting to the point where it’s irrelevant for standard mixed owners. It’s not like those guys are Max Scherzer or Troy Tulowitzki to start with.
