Mariners RF Nelson Cruz slams 20th home run of season
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/1/15) Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz went 2 for 5 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's in over the Padres.
Cruz hit a two-run home run in the ninth-inning to help cap what turned out to be a four-run inning for the Mariners who won 7-0.
Cruz is hitting .350 with seven hits, a home run and four RBI over his last five games.
Mariners' Nelson Cruz will start at DH
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/15) The Mariners will have Nelson Cruz available for Tuesday night's game against the Royals.
Cruz, who is starting as the team's designated hitter, sustained a displaced pelvic bone injury on Monday that caused some doubt as to whether he would be able to suit up for Tuesday's game. The injury apparently wasn't serious enough to cause him to miss game action.
Cruz is hitting .313/.380/.568 this season.
Mariners RF Nelson Cruz nearly set to start Tuesday

|(6/23/15) Lloyd McClendon has declared that Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz is expected to play Tuesday night against Kansas City.
McClendon told MLB Network Radio that Cruz was "running around after the game" Monday after his pelvic bone had been displaced and had to be popped back in place. McClendon added that Cruz has been lobbying to remain in the lineup, claiming he was good to go.
Mariners OF Nelson Cruz seems fine after pelvic bone scare
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/15) The Mariners have clarified the injury that forced slugger Nelson Cruz out of the game Monday night, which was originally claimed to be right hamstring tightness. It has since been diagnosed as a displaced pelvic bone.
Trainers popped it back into place. The injury is not considered serious or long-term.
"He had some discomfort," Lloyd McClendon told MLB.com. "He's OK now but we'll see how he feels (Tuesday)."
Cruz has been pretty much raking all season. His 0-for-2 performance Monday ended a four-game hitting streak, but he still boasts a tremendous slash line of .313/.380/.568.
Mariners OF Nelson Cruz suffers hamstring injury Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/15) Mariners outfielder Nelson Cruz was forced to exit Monday's game against the Royals after he sustained a right hamstring injury, reports The News Tribune.
Cruz was 0 for 2 before leaving with the injury. He was replaced by Dustin Ackley in the seventh inning.
After the game, manager Lloyd McClendon said the injury is not serious, reports The News Tribune.
"What they're telling me," McClendon said, "is it's going to be very short-term."
|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.
