Cruz was drawing interest from National League and American League clubs recently, but he'll remain in the AL once Thursday's trade is made official. The 41-year-old slugger has slashed .294/.370/.537 with 19 home runs, 50 RBI, 44 runs and three stolen bases this year. Cruz should serve as the Rays' primary option at designated hitter going forward.
