The Dodgers will reportedly release Jose Cruz Jr. after being unable to find a trade for him.

Cruz Jr. is likely to latch on with another team once he's released, because he'd only cost about $100,000 for the remainder of the season.

Send Denorfia back to the Bats and allow him to play everyday. Have Cruz alternate RF with Freel.

W/ Freel in the line-up:

Freel RF
Phillips 2B
Griffey CF
Dunn LF
Enacarnacion 3B
Hatteberg 1B
Clayton SS
Ross/LaRue C

W/ Cruz:

Phillips 2B
Dunn LF
Griffey CF
Encarnacion 3B
Cruz RF
Hatteberg 1B
Clayton SS
Ross/LaRue C

Sorry but all the DFA's this year cost them at least $100,000. The offense could use the extra power and the defense could use his glove. At $100,000 I think that may be as good of a pick up as Phillips was.

Is he considered a good defensive player?? Seems like his bat has fallen this year

I'll take the 26 year old 4th OF with speed and defensive skills, he'll help the Reds more than Cruz, who would be on his 6th team in 4 seasons... that is a telling sign IMO, plus he seems to ride his rep on small sample surges, like LA 2005, Toronto 2001 and Seattle 1997

I agree with WOY, Deno over Cruz
