Nelson Cruz Projections | Platoon Splits (RHP vs LHP)

Nelson Cruz projected to 150 Games vs RHP and LHP with 12 team mixed fantasy value. This helps identify a player's platoon value for fantasy baseball based on pitcher handedness. These projections by Steamer are a MUCH better indicator of a hitter's platoon splits than in-season stats since it involves multiple years of data and has been properly regressed to league averages. Since games are neutralized across players, values for everyday players may look smaller than for preseason/season to date/rest of season where they benefit from playing time advantages vs other players. In general, left-handed hitters have larger platoon splits.

Nelson Cruz Fantasy Outlook For 2021

Grey Albright Player Summary
Twins re-signed him. You know they were going to, even if baseball writers were trying to push the narrative: Cruz is holding out to see if the NL would have the DH, like 15 more teams would be competing for his services. There’s only three teams in the NL signing anyone, and those three teams have DHs if it gets implemented. Like the Marlins are gonna suddenly be like, 'We can sign a DH for $18 million per year? Where do we sign up!' Or how about the Rockies who spent $50 million to trade away one of their best hitters? Hmm, no? Okay.
