Nelson Cruz to play outfield in NL park

Nelson Cruz will remain in the Mariners' lineup this week for two games against the Nationals, suiting up for right field duties.

Fantasy Impact

With the DH role not an option, Seattle will need to put Cruz in the field in order to keep him in the lineup. Hopefully, he's able to avoid injury during his time in the field and he's able to continue producing at the plate.
