It's just to give him a break. Washington even said Cruz looked "fatigued". He'll be fine.
Can't worry about tomorrow's pain tonight.

Just curious here, w/ Hamilton coming back soon, what will that due to Cruz's value? Cruz is known for his prolong slumps. If cruz goes on another tear, would it be best to move him?

YES! He will be a guy that will tear it up for 2 weeks, then slump for 2 or 3. He has already done that cycle twice this year, and I see no reason why that would change. I drafted him in the 12th round, but no longer have him as I couldn't stand the extreme peaks and valleys. In a roto league I would not trade him, as he should end up with about 35 homeruns and around 110 rbi with about 25 steals (very good numbers, especially for a guy who wasn't drafted in the early rounds), but in my H2H points-based league he was a guy that was just as likely to score 11 points as he was 40. A couple of guys on your roster like that, and you are looking at a .500 team in H2H play. Just ask the guy who has him now. He's 6-6 while I'm 9-3. Good riddance Cruz!

In a 10 team 5x5 roto league, I've been trying to play the hot streaks. Occasionally you'll get burned if he hits a HR on the bench, but there is a pretty clear pattern here - work him back in when he starts to heat up.

I say sell high on this guy. I just moved him for A. Soriano... With Hamilton back, Cruz will be hitting in the 7/8 hole and I do not like that at all.
