FANTASY BASEBALL: Nelson On Cruz Control!


Nelson Cruz: "I'm in control, Ba-bee!"

By Si Korot, Senior Contributing Writer

Texas Outfielder Nelson Cruz hit a home run in the top of the 10th inning to give the Texas Rangers a big win over the Cleveland Indians Monday afternoon. Going 2-for-4 today, with 2 RBI and a run scored, Cruz is hitting .458, with 5 HRs, 11 RBI and 7 runs scored after 7 games. Not too shabby for a player who went in the 10th round in many fantasy drafts.

After missing approximately 30 games due to injury in 2009, Cruz had deemed himself healthy for the campaign ahead. Without much prior production to fall back on, fantasy owners were tentative about drafting of the late-blooming Dominican. But if he fell to you in the 9th, 10th or even 11th round, more power to you so far. The dude’s on FIRE!
