Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Cranks 35th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Mashes 33rd homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Seattle's 7-5 defeat to Oakland on Friday.

That's now 33 long balls for the veteran slugger, who continues to make a mockery of Father Time in his age-38 season. He's now slashing .266/.349/.539 through 425 at-bats as he looks to make a push to reach the 40-homer threshold for the fourth time in the last five seasons.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Pair of hits while manning outfield spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-5 in an extra-inning win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The combination of an interleague road series and manager Scott Servais' desire to keep Cruz's potent bat in the lineup in a hitter-friendly environment led to Cruz's first start in the outfield this season. Cruz was able to play an error-free game while also contributing his seventh multi-hit effort of August. The veteran slugger has bounced back nicely from a lackluster July in which he hit only .221 to slash .274/.337/.536 with six home runs and 16 RBI over 92 plate appearances.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: To man right field Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz will make a start in right field against the Diamondbacks on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Without the use of a DH in a National League ballpark, manager Scott Servais is required to thrust Cruz into a role in the field in order to get his bat in the lineup. Cruz has yet to play an inning in the field this year, but he did manage to collect five starts in right field in 2017. He's hitting .265/.350/.537 with 31 home runs and 79 RBI this season.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Hits 31st homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a pair of runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Astros.

The homer, Cruz's 31st of the season, came in the fourth inning off of Charlie Morton. It was his first home run in over two weeks, his third-longest drought of the season. He also doubled and scored in the sixth inning.
