Padres Release Nelson Cruz


The Padres have released designated hitter Nelson Cruz, according to his transactions tracker at He was designated for assignment a week ago and the club was apparently unable to line up a trade in the meantime. He would have been able to elect free agency if he cleared waivers, so the Friars had little choice but to send him back to the open market.

More to come.
