BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Cruz and his gargantuan raw power will play a more integral role in the Rangers’ offense this season following Josh Hamilton’s departure. Part of that role will be staying on the field; he avoided the disabled list for the first time in his big-league career last season, playing in a career-high 159 games. The downside is that he saw a slight overall dip in offensive production. No longer the 20-steal threat that he was in 2009, Cruz has lost some of his athleticism in recent years, reducing his range in right field (though he still wields a cannon for a right arm). The Rangers need Cruz to help carry their lineup this season. A return to his 2009-11 offensive form would be a big step in the right direction, although at his age and with his recent downward trends, that might be asking too much.
2012 What can be said about Nelson Cruz’s hamstring that hasn’t already been said about James Patterson’s prose or the Star Wars prequels? After three trips to the disabled list in 2010 with hamstring-related injuries, Nelson Cruz once again found himself back in the training room in 2011, limited to 124 games and inconsistent results. The 31-year-old Dominican has elite power and gave the world a prolonged taste of his talents during a remarkable postseason power barrage. But the injury issues cloud Cruz’s future and severely restrict the potential of his offensive prowess. When healthy, Cruz could hit in the middle of any lineup in baseball. The key words being “when” and “could.”
2011 Picking up where his impressive 2009 campaign left off, Cruz continued to develop into one of the top right-handed power bats in the American League. A member of the Rangers’ “middle-of-the-order mashers who enjoy annual trips to the disabled list” club, Cruz played in only 108 games, hitting the DL three times with hamstring issues. When on the field, he showed all five tools—an ability to hit for average and superlative power, a solid glove, a rocket arm, and surprising speed. As a first-year arbitration-eligible player, Cruz is due for a substantial step up in base pay; if he can stay healthy, he'll be worth every penny and then some.
2010 Cruz may be the most presentable, classic example of the Rangers taking somebody else's former prospect, plugging him in, and enjoying the result. His power's not a Ballpark fiction, even slugging 100 points less away from home: a road ISO of .246 is still entirely slug-worthy. His BABIP was a low .278, but he's a fly-ball hitter in a fly ball-hitting environment finally logging a full season, so you shouldn't invest a ton of hope that he's going to add 20 points and go extra-nuts on the league; between his strikeouts and fly balls, racking up RBI will depend on his hitting more homers, which is why his OBI% was a surprisingly low 13.9 percent. He's a fine regular in his prime who just shouldn't be asked to be the best hitter in a contending lineup.
2009 Cruz's up-and-down career hit one of its upswings, as he re-stated his case for a lineup spot after being taken off of the 40-man roster at the end of camp. Eventually, the Rangers saw the error of their ways and brought him back in August, well after he'd belabored the point. Don't get worked up about that comp to Sosa—it's a comparison to the Sammy Sosa before his big '98 and the attendant spike in walks in his age-29 season. That was a good ballplayer, a guy you could count on for 30-40 homers, a little bit more than you'll get from Cruz, but he's been given Ron Washington's endorsement as the cleanup hitter of the present.
2008 Over the last two seasons, Cruz has hit 35 home runs and slugged .580 at Triple-A, but he's been given two sizable opportunities with the Rangers and proven each time that he's probably yet another Quadruple-A talent. Cruz is just too much of a hacker and a chaser at the plate, and once big league pitchers realized that, stopped giving him anything to hit.
2007 Cruz has been through four organizations--the Mets, A`s, Brewers, and now Rangers. He`s been traded for Jorge Velandia, Keith Ginter, and a package of players including Laynce Nix, Kevin Mench, and Fracisco Cordero. At least he was a throw-in in a prestige deal this time around--constantly being traded for fringe reserve infielders can sap a guy`s confidence. He`ll have a solid shot at the starting right field job this spring. With 4 assists in just 38 games in right for the Rangers, he made a case that he`s the best defensive fit for the job, but his bat may prove to be a bit light for a right fielder in Texas`s low-gravity ballpark. As with Botts, Cruz`s ultimate disposition may depend on whether Wilkerson has a comeback season in him.
2005 When your winter ball team cuts you from its roster eight months before the season begins, your prospect status has gotten a bit iffy. But one good season later, they took him back. Cruz came to the organization from the Mets in a deal for Jorge Velandia, and has now been flipped to the Brewers for Keith Ginter. Not a bad return on investment, although it also took Justin Lehr to make the deal happen. Cruz is a power player in every sense, trying to hammer everything at the plate while flashing a great arm in the field. He's a bit old for a guy who just cracked Double-A, but the Brewers need all the help they can get, and it might only take the next Geoff Jenkins breakdown to get him into the big leagues.
