Cruz's contract will be selected by the Pirates on Saturday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Cruz spent most of the season at Double-A Altoona but was promoted to Triple-A Indianapolis in late September. He appeared in six games for Indianapolis and hit .524 with five homers, 11 runs, seven RBI and a stolen base. The 22-year-old will have a chance to make his major-league debut during the final two games of the regular season.
