Yankees Sign Luis Cruz

The Yankees announced that they have signed infielder Luis Cruz.  The veteran is represented by John Boggs & Associates, as shown in the MLBTR Agency Database.

Cruz, appeared in 45 games this season with the Dodgers before being designated for assignment on June 28th.  The 29-year-old made 30 starts for L.A., 20 at third base and ten at shortstop, but had an abysmal .344 OPS in 128 plate appearances.  For his big league career, Cruz has a .240/.277/.328 slash line, but he is valued more for his defense than his bat.  The veteran boasts a career 25.6 UZR/150 at third base and 10.8 UZR/150 at shortstop.
