Nelson Cruz is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.
Cruz has battled a wrist injury of late, so the Mariners will give him a breather after they were eliminated from the American League Wild Card race on Saturday. Robinson Cano is in the designated hitter spot, while Mike Freeman is at second base. Leonys Martin, Mike Zunino, Nori Aoki and Ketel Marte are also sitting out, as the M's have Guillermo Heredia in center field, Chris Iannetta at catcher, Ben Gamel in left field and Shawn O'Malley at shortstop.
