Nelson Cruz finishes with league leading 119 RBIs

Nelson Cruz finished the 2017 regular season with 39 homers, 119 RBIs, and a .288/.375/.549 triple slash line.

Fantasy Impact

The 119 RBIs led the American League. Cruz also scored 91 runs and posted a .924 OPS. He fell one homer shy of making it four consecutive seasons with at least 40 long balls. However, Cruz just turned 37 years old, which means a drop-off in production could be coming any year now.

Nelson Cruz homers again

Nelson Cruz went 2-for-5 including a solo home run and scoring two runs in Seattle's 11-4 loss to the Indians on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz' home run in the eighth inning was his 37th bomb of the season, and the fourth time he has homered in as many games. In that span, the veteran designated hitter is slashing a remarkable .429/.556/1.286. Fantasy owners should look to Cruz to extend his latest power surge through the final seven games of the 2017 campaign.

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.
