Latest Update Nelson Cruz Blasts AL-Leading 28th HR   Tue Jul, 08, 06:52 AM

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

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 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

    Nelson Cruz with grand slam on Wednesday
  • Cruz has shown to be a great signing by the Orioles just days before opening day, having now hit 24 home runs with 64 RBI through his first 290 at-bats. Although he can be a very streaky player at times, if he can maintain his current pace and avoid an extended stint on the disabled list, there is a good chance he will set new career-highs in both the home run and RBI categories by season's end.
