The Seattle Mariners suffer yet another blow to their roster

Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz was pulled from a game with a bruised right foot after being hit by a pitch in the fourth inning Tuesday night.

Cruz was struck by a changeup from Texas’ Brandon Mann and limped to the dugout with the help of two staff members. Seattle says X-rays were negative and that Cruz will be re-evaluated Wednesday.

It was the second time Cruz was hit by a pitch in the game. Starter Mike Minor plunked him in the third inning.

Cruz was making his 358th start at designated hitter for Seattle, which broke a tie with Ken Phelps for most in franchise history.
