Sources: Royals, RHP Cruz near deal

25
Free-agent pitcher Juan Cruz, caught in an unusual vise of rules and economy this offseason, is moving closer toward a deal with the Kansas City Royals, according to three sources. Arizona would get two 2009 compensatory draft picks -- a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds and the Royals' second-round pick at around No. 55 overall -- if the deal is completed. I like this. I think it's a risk worth taking as far as this year is concerned. Definitely decreases the dependence on Farnsworth.
