Nelson Cruz declines qualifying offer from Rangers


The Texas Rangers have been officially notified that free agent outfielder Nelson Cruz has declined the club's qualifying offer of a 2014 contract.

Cruz had until 4:00 p.m. CST today to accept or decline the Rangers 2014 qualifying offer. Texas may still negotiate with Cruz on a new contract, but the Rangers will gain an additional selection in the 2014 First Year Player Draft if he should sign with another team.
