Cruz was signed to a four-year, $57 million free agent contract this winter to bring some pop to the Mariners’ lineup and he went 3-for-5 with three RBI on Saturday after opening the year in a minor 1-for-15 funk. He posted an .859 OPS with 40 home runs and 108 RBI in 159 games last season for the Orioles.
