Mariners | Nelson Cruz prefers playing field

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 15:27:32 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz, who leads the league in home runs and RBI, prefers playing the field to serving as the designated hitter, and the numbers show. He is hitting .382 (21-for-55) with all nine of his home runs and 19 of his 21 RBI in 14 games in right field this year. Cruz is just 2-for-20 in five games as the DH with one extra-base hit and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Keep that in mind when considering Cruz ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) for your FantasyScore lineups. He'll continue to be a strong play for your daily lineups tonight while facing Texas Rangers starter Ross Detwiler. However, Cruz is serving as the DH Tuesday.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz to see more outfield time

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 11:20:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said DH/OF Nelson Cruz will "play his share of outfield," and predicted that he could play more than 35 games in the field this season. McClendon likes the idea of being able to use the DH spot to give banged-up players a break while keeping their bats in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is more likely to see time in the outfield when the club is facing a right-handed starter because that would allow 2B/OF Rickie Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) to be used as a designated hitter.
