Oneil Cruz Delivers Key RBI in Pirates' 4-1 Victory

Oneil Cruz went 1-for-4 with two RBI in the Pirates' win over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

His contributions were crucial in securing the victory, though his overall performance this season has been a mixed bag. With a batting average of .251 and a high strikeout rate of .324, Cruz's inconsistency at the plate continues to be a concern for fantasy managers. However, his ability to drive in runs, evidenced by his 30 RBI and occasional power (9 HRs), keeps him relevant in fantasy lineups.

Oneil Cruz powers Pirates to shutout victory over Twins

Oneil Cruz went 1-for-2 with a home run and an RBI in the Pirates' 3-0 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included a walk and he scored once. Cruz's home run adds a bit of shine to a season where he's batting .247 with nine homers and 24 RBI over 57 games. While his power is evident, his high strikeout rate (.345) and low walk rate (.073) continue to be areas of concern for fantasy managers. However, his ability to impact the game with both his bat and his speed (5 stolen bases) keeps him relevant in most fantasy formats. His .316 wOBA and .349 BABIP suggest some level of consistency, but fantasy managers should temper expectations given his swing-and-miss tendencies.
