Baltimore Orioles DH Nelson Cruz went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Wednesday, Aug. 6, and he has only two hits in his last 38 at-bats. He entered the game with a .438 average in his last four games against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz had a fantastic first half of the season, but since the All-Star break, he's been pretty awful. Can you say negative regression? Anyway, it would be wise to hold Cruz out of your lineups until he can get things going again.
