FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Nelson Cruz went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and and two runs scored against the Nationals on Monday.

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
