    • Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Scratched with illness
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cruz was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Angels due to an illness, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Cruz appears to have caught the bug that's been making its way through the clubhouse. Daniel Vogelbach took his place as the designated hitter. The veteran slugger should be considered day-to-day. It's worth noting that Jean Segura missed three games earlier in the week due to an illness.

    • Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Blasts 36th homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cruz went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Angels. Cruz took Noe Ramirez deep in the fourth inning to record his 36th home run of the season. He is pacing toward his fourth 40-homer campaign in the past five seasons, an impressive feat for the 38-year-old.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Cruz went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a double in Seattle's 5-4 loss to the Padres on Wednesday. That's now 35 long balls for the ageless slugger, who also boosted his slash line to .263/.349/.533 with this performance. Cruz doesn't appear to be slowing down at age 38, as he's on pace to finish with 39 homers -- exactly the total he put up last season.

    • Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Smacks 34th homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cruz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and double and scored two runs Wednesday in the Mariners' 5-2 win over the Orioles. Even though Cruz turned 38 in July, few power hitters have remained as bankable as him over the past decade. The long ball was his 34th of the season, putting him well on his way to surpass the 35-homer barrier for the fifth straight year. Though the Mariners have fallen off the pace in the wild-card race during the second half, Cruz should benefit from consistent at-bats for most of September while the team's slim playoff hopes remain alive.
