Mariners' Nelson Cruz: On base three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz drew three walks and scored twice in a win over the Rockies on Sunday.

The Rockies treaded carefully around the slugger, but all that did was set up RBI opportunities for Ryon Healy, who subsequently drove Cruz in with a double and a three-run home run. Cruz has gotten off to a rocky start in July and is hitless in his last nine at-bats, but Sunday was already his second three-walk day of July. Despite his prodigious power, the veteran slugger's contributions sometimes come from having sufficient plate discipline to not stray outside the strike zone, as was the case Sunday.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Slugs 22nd homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs in a win over the Angels on Tuesday.

Cruz capped off a productive night with a 398-foot shot to left that closed out the scoring for the Mariners. The veteran slugger is once again pacing the team in home runs (22), while his 52 RBI are second only to Mitch Haniger on the Mariners.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Continues power streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and three RBI in a 4-2 win over Baltimore on Thursday.

Cruz entered June with just 10 home runs and a .247 average. After absolutely smashing over the last four weeks, the 37-year-old slugger has 21 long balls and a .277/.363/.578 slash line. Cruz was held out of the lineup in Seattle's last two games with some back discomfort, but it looks like that faded pretty quickly.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: In Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz (back) will DH and bat out of the cleanup position for Thursday's game against the Orioles, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.

As expected, Cruz will return to the Mariners' lineup after sitting out the past two contests due to lower-back tightness. During his past eight games, Cruz is hitting .433 with four home runs, nine RBI and a 1.481 OPS.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Expects to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz (back) said that he plans to be back in the lineup for Thursday's series finale in Baltimore, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Cruz added that his back was feeling much better prior to Wednesday's game, though manager Scott Servais elected to keep him out of the lineup for a second straight game. Over 66 contests this year, Cruz is hitting .270 with a .924 OPS.
