Nelson Cruz is out of the Mariners' lineup Tuesday due to a nerve issue in his left hand.
Cruz felt discomfort on swings Sunday and Monday and will take at least one day of rest, possibly two. He's batting .154 (4-for-26) over his last seven games. Daily Slant: With Cruz out of the lineup, Cole Hamels' biggest concern is alleviated. It's still not going to be smooth sailing in hitter friendly Globe Life Park, but this is a huge blow for the Mariners who will now roll out the light hitting Shawn O'Malley and Ketel Marte as the table setters ahead of Robinson Cano and Franklin Gutierrez. The Mariners own a 21.6 K% against LHP while Hamels owns a solid 24.0 K% at home. Aug 30 - 4:53 PM
