Seeing Nelson Cruz play for the Chicago White Sox would surely be interesting.
Nelson Cruz has tormented the White Sox for years. He played with the Minnesota Twins for three years and hit 76 home runs, seemingly half of those coming against the White Sox.
Cruz is a 17-year veteran that has accumulated quite a resume. He has 449 career home runs, 1238 RBIs, a lifetime .277 batting average, seven All-Star appearances, four Silver Slugger awards, and took home 2011 ALCS MVP.
Cruz has also finished in the top-10 of the MVP voting five times. Best of all for the White Sox, he is the most experienced DH on the market. He has 881 games as a designated hitter under his belt.
Like a fine wine, he seems to get better with age. In his age 41 season, Cruz hit 32 home runs and drove in 86 RBIs. He also hit a respectable .265. Before being traded to the Tampa Bay Rays, he was hitting .297. Just imagine what he could do next to Jose Abreu and Eloy Jimenez.
Because of his age, Cruz would not require a long-term commitment. This is ideal for a White Sox team looking to capitalize on their championship window without being tied down by a long-term commitment. He has shown he can still rake at an old age and that he is more than comfortable hitting at Guaranteed Rate Field.
