News: Cruz went 3-for-5 and swatted his 40th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Yankees. Impact: Cruz went from signing a contract late in February to likely finishing the week as MLB's home run leader while going north of 100 RBI as well. There was fear that his PED use might reflect in his 2014 numbers, but Cruz actually improved after leaving the Rangers. It will probably take multiple years and much more than $8 million to sign Cruz this off-season.(RotoWire, )
