Player Notes
Nelson Cruz left Wednesday's game against the Yankees due to back spasms.

Advice: Cruz was pinch-hit for by Mike Zunino in the eighth inning of Wednesday's loss to the Yankees. This was just a precautionary move, though, and the slugger could return to the lineup on Thursday at the White Sox.

Nelson Cruz was pinch-hit for in the eighth inning of Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

Advice: Mike Zunino came on to hit for Cruz with a pair of runners aboard in the eighth. Cruz appeared to be limping earlier in the contest, but specific word as to the nature of his assumed injury has not been passed along by the Mariners. That should come after the game.

Nelson Cruz went 2-for-3 and launched his 30th homer Monday against the Angels on Monday.

Advice: It's looking good for Cruz to join Babe Ruth and Mark McGwire as the only players to hit 40 homers at ages 33, 34 and 35. Technically, he's 36 now, but this still qualifies as his age-35 campaign.
