      Rhiner Cruz: Hits free agency

      Rhiner Cruz (groin) elected to become a free agent Friday.Rather than accept an outright assignment to Triple-A Buffalo, Cruz elected to hit the open market after passing through waivers untouched. The veteran right-hander returned to the majors for the first time since 2013 last season, though he made just two appearances before suffering a season-ending groin injury. He figures to serve as organizational bullpen depth wherever he lands this offseason.

      Blue Jays' Rhiner Cruz: Agrees to NRI deal with Blue Jays

      Rhiner Cruz signed a minor-league contract with Toronto on Thursday which includes an invitation to spring training, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.The right-hander spent all of last season pitching at Triple-A Gwinnett within Atlanta's system, accumulating a 2.84 ERA and 1.33 WHIP with a 63:24 K:BB over 50.2 innings of relief. He will likely begin this upcoming campaign back at the Triple-A level but should provide added organizational depth for Toronto's bullpen.

      Braves' Rhiner Cruz: Heads to minors

      Rhiner Cruz was reassigned to minor league camp Wednesday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.The 30-year-old pitched well enough during his brief stint in big league camp, as he struck out two batters over three scoreless innings. However, it seems there was simply no room for him on the roster. Cruz will likely head to Triple-A and attempt to pitch his way back onto the major league roster after being away from the U.S. for the past two years.

      Braves' Rhiner Cruz: Returns to US on NRI deal with Braves

      Rhiner Cruz signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training.The 30-year-old righty spent 2016 in Mexico, although he had little success in his limited appearances out of the bullpen. Cruz did fan nine batters during his seven-inning stint in the league, but his lack of control and propensity to give up home runs will likely keep him in an organizational depth role.
