Nelson Cruz hits walk-off home run

Nelson Cruz went 2-for-3 including a walk-off two-run blast to lead the Mariners to a 3-1 victory over the Indians on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz is closing out the 2017 season on another power surge. His walk-off homer off of Cody Allen in the bottom of the ninth inning was his third opposite field long ball in as many games, and his 36th home run of the year. In addition, the veteran slugger continues to tack onto his American League leading RBI total, which now stands at 114. With eight games left to play, Cruz has the chance to hit reach the 40 homer mark for his fourth straight season.

Nelson Cruz adds to American League leading RBI total

Nelson Cruz finished the night 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in Seattle's 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

The homer pushed Cruz' American League leading RBI total to 112, seven better than Jonathan Schoop's 105. It was his second long ball in as many games. In his last 17 games, the veteran designated hitter is batting a phenomenal .317/.431/.550 with four home runs, nine RBIs and 13 runs scored. Fantasy owners of Cruz can be none other than pleased with the multiple category contributions (.286 AVG, 35 HR, 84 R) he has provided them throughout the 2017 campaign.

Nelson Cruz hits homer

Nelson Cruz drilled a Jesse Chavez slider over the left-center field wall for a three-run homer in Seattle's 8-1 win over the Angels on Saturday. He finished the night going 1-for-4.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz has a moderate six-game hitting streak, going 7-for-21 in that span. The veteran slugger, however, has been on a power outage of late. Prior to last night's game, he had only one homer and four RBIs in his last sixteen contests. Yet Cruz has recorded a very respectable .284 AVG, 32 HR, 107 RBI (which leads the American League) and 75 runs for the year, which makes him one of the elite set-and-forget players for fantasy GM's in all seasonal formats.

Nelson Cruz drives in run

Nelson Cruz went 1-for-3 Sunday with an RBI single in the eighth-inning in Seattle's 10-2 route of Oakland. He also walked twice and struck out once.

Fantasy Impact

After a torrid pace in the first-two thirds of August, Cruz has cooled off lately. In the 10 games prior to Sunday's contest, the veteran slugger was only 4-for-33 (.121 AVG) with no homers and three RBIs. His RBI single yesterday plated Yonder Alonzo, and was Cruz' American League leading 104th RBI. Look for Cruz to heat up again, as the Mariners attempt to qualify for a wild-card spot in the post-season.
