Nelson Cruz went 1-for-4 and belted a solo home run, his 34th of the season, against the Cubs on Friday.
Cruz was in a bit of a slump, batting just .219 in August, but has broken out in a big way the last couple of days, hitting three homers over his last four games. Cruz will remain a huge help in the power department for fantasy owners, and may actually see an average increase from his current .258, as it has been dragged down by a poor .263 BABIP.

Mike Scott will not play Saturday.
Scott has shed his walking boot, but is still a couple of practices away from returning to the floor in a game. His sprained left big toe, which he suffered in a game on March 11 against the Nuggests, is still giving him trouble and he is probably a week or so away from joining the team on the court.

Paul George (leg) ruled out for Sunday.
He has not been cleared by the team for game action, so despite his desire to play again before the regular season is done, he will have to miss some more action. Consider him day-to-day for now. Until he returns to action, he is worthless for fantasy purposes. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
