Player Notes
Nelson Cruz went 2-for-5 with a three run home run, but the Orioles fell to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Advice: Cruz's fourth home run of the season came in the sixth inning, a three-run shot off of R.A. Dickey to break a scoreless tie. Cruz, who was teamless throughout the off-season, has rewarded the Orioles for their gamble with a productive start to the season. He is slashing .290/.372/.522 with 16 RBI in 78 trips to the plate.

Nelson Cruz belted his third home run of the 2014 season in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

Advice: Cruz got the O's on the board kicking off a three-run first inning off Jake Peavy. He finished the night 2-for-4 and owns an impressive .279/.362/.492 slash with 12 RBI in his first 16 games with the Orioles.

Tue, Apr 22 Rotoworld
Nelson Cruz is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

Advice: It appears to just be a day off. The O's are going with Delmon Young in left field and Steve Pearce in the DH spot Sunday.
