Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Homers, drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Returns to action Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: 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: Smacks 34th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Attempting to battle through bruised foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz is dealing with a bruise on his foot after hitting a foul ball off himself Saturday night against the Athletics, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Cruz managed to go 1-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's series finale, and he'll try to play through the minor injury moving forward. Given the nature of the injury, it's entirely possible he won't miss any time, especially during such a crucial part of the regular season. The Mariners are slated to begin a three-game series with the Orioles on Monday.
