The Royals wanted to solidify their bullpen, so today they went out and signed Juan Cruz. This should be a excellent addition to the Royals bullpen after trading away Nunez and Ramirez. Cruz has had a few solid seasons working out of the bullpen and hopefully he can continue that in Kansas City. Here is the details about his contract:
Cruz signed a contract that would guarantee him $6 million over two years. The deal was believed to be worth $2.25 million for this year, $3.25 million for 2010 and had a club option for $4 million for ’11 with a $500,000 buyout.
