Nelson Cruz reiterates desire to stay with Orioles
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Impending free agent Nelson Cruz reiterated after Wednesday's ALCS elimination that he'd like to stay with the Orioles this offseason, masnsports.com reports.

Cruz said he loves the organization and team. However, he'll be looking to cash in on an excellent walk year after leading the majors with 40 home runs. He hit .271/.333/.525 with 108 RBI in 613 at-bats during the regular season.

Report: Orioles trying to get deal done with Nelson Cruz
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Orioles are pushing to get a deal done with outfielder Nelson Cruz, sources told FOX Sports.

Cruz's agents met with Orioles general manager Dan Duquette this week, sources told FOX Sports. Cruz recently changed agents from Wasserman Media Group to Relativity Sports.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported in late August the two sides expressed an interest in a contract extension.

Cruz, who signed a one-year deal in the offseason, clubbed a career-best 40 home runs in 2014. He also hit .271 with a .525 slugging percentage, .859 OPS, 32 doubles, 87 runs and a career-high 108 RBI in 159 games.

Cruz has stayed hot in the playoffs, batting .500 (6 for 12) with two home runs and five RBI during a three-game sweep of the Tigers in the ALDS.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
