Cruz went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Cruz is another one of his patented homer tears, now having gone deep in five of his last eight games. The slugging outfielder added to his career-high RBI total with Wednesday's two-run blast, pushing his tally to 117. He's also now just two round trippers shy of a fourth straight 40-homer campaign.

Cruz went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs Saturday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Cruz blasted his 37th homer of the campaign in the eighth-inning of the game that was long out of hand. He's homered in four straight contests, and the slugger has been a fantasy force this season, as evidenced by his .289/.377/.550 slash line.

Cruz went 2-for-3 with a walk and a game-winning two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning in Friday's 3-1 win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

His blast to right-center off Cody Allen was Cruz's 36th homer of the season, and third in as many games. The veteran slugger has already set a new career high with 114 RBI, but with only eight games left on the Mariners' schedule he'll need to stay red hot to have a shot at his fourth consecutive 40-HR campaign.

Cruz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger snapped the would-be shutout with a 375-foot shot to right in the seventh, his second round tripper in as many games. Cruz hasn't quite been able to maintain the torrid pace he established in August (.341/.413/.747 line), but he boasts a .507 wOBA, .458 ISO and 52.9 percent hard contact rate over the 30 plate appearances spanning his last seven games.

Cruz went 4-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and four runs in Thursday's victory over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday's contest was Cruz's fourth multi-hit effort in seven games, and it raised his OPS to .916 the highest it has been since August came to a close. Cruz has served as the Mariners' designated hitter in every game since Aug. 25, a streak that figures to continue as the team makes a final push for the postseason.

Cruz is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Mariners in an NL park, Cruz will get the day off, although he is available off the bench. The 37-year-old played in right field during Tuesday's affair, but manager Scott Servais wasn't too keen on the prospect of putting Cruz out there again. He will likely return to the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Yankees.
