Nelson Cruz (elbow) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his return to the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.
Cruz missed a handful of games after getting hit on the elbow by a pitch last weekend. The veteran slugger has a relatively disappointing .221/.311/.427 batting line with seven home runs and 18 RBI in 35 games this season. Injuries have played a role in that. May 24 - 8:13 AM
