[7/26/2017] Rakuten Eagles acquire Luis Cruz in cash trade

The Rakuten Eagles announced today that they reached an agreement to acquire thirty-three-year-old Luis Cruz from the Yomiuri Giants for cash. He was assigned the uniform number 67.

The Eagles held a press conference for Cruz today and he went 1-for-4 with an RBI in tonight’s game against the Softbank Hawks.

The Eagles were looking for some infield help after losing both Kazuya Fujita and Eigoro Mogi to injuries. The recent injury to Carlos Peguero also opened up a foreign player slot on their active roster.
