Mariners' Nelson Cruz keeps slugging, nabs 14th homer Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 3-2 win over the Angels Monday.
The Mariners were only able to collect four home runs Monday night; incredibly, three were solo homers, with the first coming from Cruz, the major-league home-run leader. He broke a scoreless tie with his seventh-inning shot over the left field wall. It was his fifth home run in the last six games.
Cruz has hit .340/.382/.796 with 14 home runs and 26 RBI in 103 at-bats. He'll look to keep rolling as the series against the Angels continues Tuesday.
Mariners' Nelson Cruz crushes two more home runs Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) Mariners outfielder Nelson Cruz went 3 for 4 at the plate in Seattle's 11-4 loss to the Astros Saturday.
Cruz did his damage early in the second, taking a Collin McHugh pitch over the left center field wall for a solo blast. Then in the sixth, Cruz repeated himself with a shot to left center, his league-leading 13th home run of the year.
"I have no idea when he gets going like this what to do," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said to the Houston Chronicle. "He's as dangerous a hitter as there is in the big leagues. I like when he comes up with nobody on, I can tell you that. He’s got guys around him that are difficult to navigate, but I'm glad they were solo homers."
Cruz is now hitting a blistering .347 with 25 RBI in 95 at-bats.
"I think I've been in a pretty nice groove the last couple weeks," said Cruz to MLB.com. "It's nice. Hopefully I keep doing that and hopefully I get some runners on and I can do that damage also. It feels like every time I've got runners on, I've left them out there."
Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon demands his offense picks it up
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) Although free-agent pick up Nelson Cruz has been outstanding thus far for the Mariners (league-leading 11 home runs), the rest of the offense has underachived and manager Lloyd McClendon voicedhis frustrations, reports MLB.com.|
"We've got to get going," McClendon said. "I'm seeing a lot of at-bats I don't like. We're much more professional than that. You've got to be able to slow things down and get it done and we're just not doing that."
Nelson Cruz launches league-leading 11th homer in Mariners' loss

Mariners' Nelson Cruz hits another home run against Rangers
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Nelson Cruz hit his 10th home run of the season in the Mariners' 5-2 win over the Rangers on Wednesday night.
Cruz hit the solo home run in the second inning. He also hit a single and scored two runs in the game. Cruz's RBI from the solo shot brings his total to 22 this season. Cruz also drew a walk.
Cruz is now hitting .337/.389/.759 this season.
|2014 summary: Nelson Cruz erased any questions about his productivity coming off a 50-game suspension for his involvement with Biogenesis. He picked up the torrid pace he set through his abbreviated 2013 season with the Rangers and raised it a tick over the course of his 2014 campaign with the Orioles. Cruz set career highs for RBI (108) and runs (87) and his 40 home runs were both a career best and a major league-leading total. His .271 batting average was his highest since 2010, and Cruz finished as a top 10 outfielder in Fantasy. His career year earned him a four-year deal with the Mariners.
Playing time status: Cruz was once a perennial injury risk and playing time liability, but his suspension represents the only significant missed time he has missed over past three seasons.
2015 outlook: We can no longer assume Cruz will miss a large chunk of games and therefore discount his value on Draft Day. Cruz's consistent power production makes him a legitimate top 15 outfielder, but he will be hard-pressed to hit 40 home runs with Safeco Field as his home park. He is still worth an early round pick.
