Nelson Cruz leads both leagues in home runs, and he ranks second behind Bryce Harper in SLG. Neither is a surprise. The Seattle slugger left the yard 40 times with Baltimore last season, and moving to Safeco Field wasn’t going to squelch his production. Per ESPN Home Run Tracker, 22 of the 34 bombs he’s hit this year have traveled more than 400 feet. Nine of them have gone at...
Remember when nobody wanted Nelson Cruz? He’d been with the Rangers but his contract had ended and steroids and everyone was like, “Nooooo thanks.” Well, not exactly everybody. After a long time the Mariners called and reportedly had a short deal done with Cruz before the front office nixed it. I picture former team president […]
Pro tip: Don’t fall behind 3-1 to Nelson Cruz, because you probably won’t live to tell about it. The Seattle Mariners slugger is off to a red-hot start to the season, as he smashed his 10th home run of 2015 on Wednesday night against the Texas Rangers. This might have been the most impressive of the 10th, and certainly one of the longest of the now 207 home runs he’s hit in...

From Baseball America, the Mariners top 10 looks as follows: Alex Jackson, OF D.J. Peterson, 3B Ketel Marte, SS Patrick Kivlehan, 3B/1B Austin Wilson, OF Edwin Diaz, RHP...
The Seattle Mariners are hoping Safeco Field turns into a launching pad for home run balls after signing Nelson Cruz to a four-year, $57 million contract on Thursday. And in case it does, the team wants to warn everyone in Seattle that their windshields might receive some harm from moonshots hit by Cruz. The team launched an awesome marketing campaign where they placed decals...
On Monday, one of the more anticipated transactions of the past two off-seasons finally came to pass: Nelson Cruz finally signed with the Mariners. Seattle’s interest in him dates back to at least last winter, but for various reasons, he ended up settling for a one year, $8 million deal with the Orioles for 2014 […]
