    • Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Homers, drives in three
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cruz went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and two strikeouts in Tuesday's win over the Athletics. Cruz helped Seattle dig out of an early 3-0 hole, taking starter Brett Anderson deep for a three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning. The veteran has turned in another productive season now at 38 years old, blasting 37 home runs to go along with 95 RBI.

      Cruz (illness) is batting third as the designated hitter Monday against the Astros, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Cruz has been cleared to rejoin the lineup after missing Sunday's game with an illness. The veteran slugger, who is slashing .265/.351/.534 with 36 homers this season, will face rookie southpaw Framber Valdez in his return to action.

    • 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.

    • 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.
