Luis Cruz was taken off the active roster today. No specifics were mentioned. Yoshinobu Takahashi told reporters it was due to team circumstances. He will not be eligible to return to the active roster until after October 12.
[UPDATE 10/4 @ 12:07pm]
According to reports from this morning, it seems the Giants are not happy with Cruz’s attitude. They appear to be concerned that his head is not always in the game and the final nail in the coffin was when he failed to run to first at full speed during the final Hanshin series.
[UPDATE 10/4 @ 9:13pm]
Cruz joined the Ni-gun team for practices at Giants Stadium today.
