Report: Mariners talking to Cruz, targeting Rodney

  // Tuesday, 04 February 2014 11:30 //

The Seattle Mariners are in talks with outfielder Nelson Cruz and targeting closer Fernando Rodney, according to CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman.

The Mariners had been linked as a front-runner to Cruz throughout the offseason.

Discussions may have heated up in the past few days, according to Heyman, and the Mariners reportedly are willing to hand out a multi-year deal for the 33-year-old slugger.

Cruz is one of five remaining free agents with a draft choice attached to his signing by virtue of his being extended the qualifying offer by his old Texas Rangers team.
