The Caribbean ┬╗Nelson Cruz is close to signing with Seattle for $ 57 million

Google instant translation:

Nelson Cruz has an intention according to the Seattle Mariners for four seasons and about 57 million.

The information was provided to elCaribe a source close to the negotiations who asked reserves its name because the pact is not official.

Both parties negotiate a possible fifth year contract, which also includes a signing bonus. Cruz is expected to leave for the United States in the next hour physical examination that validates the deal done.

Cruz did offer several ensembles, including the Baltimore Orioles, but remained in three years and was intended to secure a room.

In Seattle, who was interested in the powerful Dominican hitter for the last match, will join Robinson Cano, his teammate in the WBC past and who had loudly expressed their desire to have him in Seattle.

Cruz is hitting 40 homers and driving in 108 laps last season with the Orioles. It was the top producer in homers in the majors last season.

Nick Cafardo on Twitter: “Right now Nelson Cruz’ five-year demand is a major stumbling block in serious contract talks. The Orioles for one, aren’t going there.”
