If you took Cruz's advancing age out of the equation, he'd probably be a second-round pick every year. He hit 39 home runs last year, which was his lowest total since 2013, telling you all you need to know about his prodigious power. Far from a decline, there were actually signs of growth from Cruz, and he posted the highest walk-rate of his career and dropped his strikeout-rate two percentage points from 2016. Simply put, other than the fact that the end comes for everyone (except David Ortiz), there is no reason to doubt that Cruz will once again put up an elite power season.

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.
