Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Homers for third consecutive game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk in Wednesday's win over Detroit.

That's now three straight games with a homer for Cruz, who has 10 RBI in that span. He also has a seven-game hitting streak going, and Wednesday's performance actually lowered his batting average during that span to .522. Father Time clearly has not come for the 36-year-old Cruz quite yet.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Keeps offensive explosion going
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI against the Tigers in Tuesday's 19-9 loss.

You certainly can't hang this defeat on Cruz, who's now hit safely in six straight games and driven home eight in the last two. After starting off the season 2-for-25, he's gone 20-for-49 (.408) with all four of his homers and 15 RBI over the last 14 games.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Explodes with five-RBI day Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-4 with five RBI from a bases-loaded walk, RBI double and three-run home run in Sunday's 11-1 win over the Athletics. He scored three times overall.

The veteran slugger finally generated the caliber of performance that the Mariners and fantasy owners alike had been clamoring for, helping to break the game open with a 415-foot shot in the sixth that gave Seattle a 9-0 lead. Cruz extended his hitting streak to five games in spectacular fashion, breaking a five-game homer drought and vaulting to second on the team in RBI behind Mitch Haniger.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Keeps on hitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run in Wednesday's 10-5 win over the Marlins.

As is the case with several of his teammates, Cruz's bat seems to be perking up over the last few games, as he's now hit safely in eight of his last nine contests. Wednesday's effort marked his third multi-hit game over that stretch, a span that also includes his first two home runs of the season. Naturally, Cruz's track record should have prevented any owners jettisoning him during his early struggles, and he now appears to be on the way to reaching his typical levels of production.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Second homer of season Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-1 win over the Marlins.

Cruz followed a mammoth 440-foot two-run shot by Robinson Cano in the first inning with a blast of his own, his second over the last four games. The homer also extended the slugger's hitting streak to seven games, while giving him four RBI over his last three contests. Cruz is still nowhere near his typical levels of production, but he's rather methodically climbing out of the early-season hole that had his average sitting at .080 after the first seven games.
