Nelson Cruz leaves spring training game with quad injury

Nelson Cruz

Nelson Cruz left the Seattle Mariners’ spring training on Tuesday with a quad injury.

Cruz knocked in the Mariners’ first run in a game with the Colorado Rockies with a line drive single to right field. After his hit, Cruz had to be helped off the field with a trainer. Mariners reporter Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times explains what happened:

The Mariners have been crushed by injuries this spring training. Robinson Cano left Sunday’s game with a hamstring issue; Ryon Healy has been dealing with a hand injury; Ben Gamel has an oblique injury; Mitch Haniger has a hand injury; Felix Hernandez has been bothered by his forearm; and Erasmo Ramirez has a lat issue. They’re hoping many of the players will be back to full strength when the season begins.

Cruz, 37, has averaged 41.5 home runs per season over the past four years. Despite his age, his is still a big threat as a slugger.
