Nelson Cruz is a Seattle Mariner, agreeing to a four year, $57 million deal with the M's, according to a report from El Caribe in the Dominican Republic.

That's a lot of money to pay Cruz, who is going to a park which is notoriously hard on righthanded power hitters. It also remains to be seen whether Cruz is going to be in the outfield or at DH.
Cruz rejected a qualifying offer from the Rangers last year, saw his market dry up, and ended up signing a one year deal with the Baltimore Orioles. After a terrific 2014 season, he rejected the qualifying offer once again, and has now been rewarded with a big payday.
I have always been a fan of Nelson Cruz, and I'm glad he's getting paid, although I'm disappointed he's going to Seattle, which means I'll have to root against him.
