Nelson Cruz to make debut for Rays at Indians

Nelson Cruz looks to make a good first impression on Friday when the Tampa Bay Rays play the second contest of their four-game series against the host Cleveland Indians.

Cruz, 41, was acquired by the Rays in a four-player trade with the Minnesota Twins on Thursday. The deal, which included three minor league pitchers, was announced just prior to the start of Tampa Bay's 5-4 victory in the series opener.

"It's a tough one. I guess it's a new chapter, and I will embrace it the way I embrace everything in my life to go help the Tampa Bay Rays to win a championship," Cruz said.
