The Minnesota Twins will get some pop back into the lineup as they look to win the AL Central and break the single-season home run mark.
Minnesota announced on Monday that it has activated six-time All-Star slugger Nelson Cruz off the injured list.
Over the course of his previous 18 games, Cruz has hit .391 with a whopping 14 homers and 28 RBI. He’s belted 32 homers and driven in 76 runs thus far this season.
The Twins head into this week’s action at 76-48 and 2.5 games ahead of the surging Cleveland Indians in the AL Central. Getting Cruz back will be a nice little jolt.
