Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Smacks pair of doubles in Thursday win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cruz went 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles, a walk and a run scored in Thursday's 5-3 victory over the Orioles.

The prolific slugger closed out June with three multi-hit efforts in his last seven games, a span that also saw him smack four homers and drive in seven runs. Cruz continues rolling along at age 36, already having reached the 20-homer mark for the eighth straight campaign while currently boasting a rock-solid .285/.370/.540 line on the season.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Hits 20th homer against Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz hit a two-run homer, his 20th, in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

Cruz now owns eight consecutive 20-homer seasons dating back to 2009 with the Rangers. Now, the question is if he can get to 40 for the third straight season. He's on pace for 42 after Tuesday's performance, and given his remarkable consistency, it's easy to like his odds to reach 40 once again.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Expected to get more time in RF
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cruz, who has started 30 games in right field, could get more playing time in the field, the Seattle Times reports.

Manager Scott Servais wants to get Dae-Ho Lee and Adam Lind in the lineup together. That requires playing one of the first basemen at DH, which means Cruz goes to right field. Cruz has also seen more time in the field because Nori Aoki usually sits against left-handed pitching. Aoki was demoted recently, but when he comes back, that likely will continue to be the plan. Extra time in the field is not ideal for Cruz, but he played 80 games in right last season, and it didn't hurt his batting.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Hits two homers in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-4 with two solo blasts in Thursday's loss to the Tigers.

Cruz's second home run of the game, his 18th of the season, tied the game at four in the sixth inning, but the Mariners fell short in extras. The ageless wonder, now in his 12th MLB season, is on pace to launch 40 bombs, notch 100-plus RBI and score nearly 100 runs. Last year's Silver Slugger winner ranks sixth in the AL for home runs, and ninth in RBI.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Cruz gets the day off after falling into a bit of a slump over the last week in which he's gone 4-for-30 with one home run and 13 strikeouts. Seth Smith will take over in right field for Cruz with the Mariners facing Michael Fulmer and the Tigers.
