Rangers_Nelson_Cruz_2013 [2]Texas acquired Alex Rios to fill the right field void following Nelson Cruz‘s suspension, but then the Rangers welcomed Cruz back for Game 163 and now keeping him around for 2014 looks like a realistic possibility too.

Cruz is a free agent and Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers will make him a qualifying offer, meaning Cruz can either accept a one-year deal worth around $14 million or Texas will receive draft pick compensation when he signs elsewhere. General manager Jon Daniels called it “a relatively easy decision.”
