Player Notes
Nelson Cruz was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Twins due to soreness in his left wrist.

Advice: The issue is believed to be minor. Cruz inflicted massive damage on the Twins before departing, smashing a pair of solo home runs in his first three at-bats. The Mariners should provide an update on his status after Sunday's game, but expect him to be listed as day-to-day.

Nelson Cruz finished 2-for-4 with a two-run jack in a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

Advice: He took Tyler Duffey deep in the fourth inning with Robinson Cano aboard to provide his team's only runs of the night. He also doubled in the ballgame. He is one homer away from his third consecutive 40-homer season. He is batting .284/.357/.545 with 39 bombs, 98 RBI and 90 runs scored in 560 at-bats.

Sat, Sep 24 Rotoworld
Nelson Cruz had a two-run homer and a two-run double Friday in the rout of the Twins.

Advice: Cruz is now just two homers away from his third straight 40-homer season. It's also possible the Mariners will have three 100-RBI guys; Cruz and Kyle Seager currently have 96 and Robinson Cano isn't far behind at 92.
