Padres Sign Jose Cruz Jr.

It's official; the Padres have agreed to a one-year, $650K contract with outfielder Jose Cruz Jr.  It's not a bad idea - for less than twice the league minimum the Padres get a lefty masher to pair with Terrmel Sledge in left field.  Plus, Cruz can play all three outfield positions.

It could make for a decent platoon.  Sledge hit .265/.345/.459 against righties over the past three seasons while Cruz hit .291/.392/.493 against southpaws.  It's a way to get league average production for cheap.
