Latest Update Cruz belts 29th homer of the seaons   Sat Jul, 26, 06:10 AM

Although there is little production in between his home runs, Cruz has now driven in 75 RBI to go along with his 29 home runs as he continues to have himself an incredible season with the Orioles. Although it is highly unlikely he will be able to match his first half totals down the stretch, 40 home runs and well over 100 RBI are certainly not out of the question by season's end even if his production dips slightly the rest of the way.Analyst: Matthew Beck

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   A bona fide top-tier power hitter with good size, a powerful swing and nice follow through, he also can run a little. Has the arm to play right field, but can also play left field.
Flaws:  : Is somewhat injury-prone, especially his legs/groins. Takes a huge cut and can be all-or-nothing at the plate (hitting a homer or striking out), so he'd benefit by shortening his swing at times.

    Nelson Cruz Blasts AL-Leading 28th HR
  • Cruz continues to be a revelation for fantasy owners as he posted his third-consecutive multi-hit game and blasted his MLB-leading 28th home run. He's batting .294 on the year and he also leads the majors with 73 RBI. Not too shabby for a mid-to-late round steal.Analyst: Howard Bender

    Nelson Cruz hits 27th home run
  • Cruz has been a home run machine in his first year with the Orioles, as he is now tied with Jose Abreu atop the home run leaderboard as we approach the midway point. Although he is coming off a month in which he hit only .215, Cruz remains a top outfield contributor moving forward while sitting on a career-best 12.1 AB/HR rate. Analyst: Matthew Beck

    Nelson Cruz hits 25th home run on Friday
  • Cruz seems to be getting back on track with his power stroke as he now has three home runs and eight RBI over his last seven games. After an awesome 13-home run May that saw him bat .339 for the month, Cruz has definitely had his struggles in June with his lowest monthly output of five home runs and 14 RBI. This past week though, it would appear as if Cruz is going to finish the first half on a high note.Analyst: Howard Bender
