Nelson Cruz aiming for weekend return

Nelson Cruz was able to do some light running on Wednesday. If all continues to go well, the Mariners hope to have him back this weekend.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz only made it through two games prior to suffering the injury, but he homered twice in that span, showing no signs of rust despite the fact that he'll turn 38 this season. Father Time will eventually catch up with Cruz, but it appears the slugger will fend him off a bit longer.
