Cruz was pulled because "Martinez said he was taken out with posterior right shoulder soreness after Cruz grimaced while swinging the bat. Cruz tried to swing in the cage to loosen up, but was replaced by Maikel Franco." From today's Post.

Time to put Cruz on the DL...and forget about him.

Also, when playing the outfield, he throws to the correct base

  Follow a major leaguer!

Give Slate some credit - Mikey Morse 2.0? 

Interesting!

I think worst case he is another Yadiel Hernandez. Not bad.

Good argument for the Nationals taking swings on a bunch of Joey Meneses types who have a good bad in minors but major league squads never gave a shot. Not like we have any high minors bats who would be blocked next season.

Lots of potential nicknames. Morse 2.0.  The Menacer. Joey 4 Bags.

Great for him. He may be the next Shelley Duncan, but it's a fun ride while it lasts

After the 6-0 loss to SD, Meneses at .400/.447/.829 over his 35 ABs

Last 7 games (24 of his 35 ABs) -- .500/.558/1.000

Even one of his outs Saturday night was on the warning track just in front of the fence.

Blocked by Hoskins in Philly. Blocked by Bell in DC. This dude can swing a bat. .990 Fielding % in the minors and all he did there was consistently mash. He's a keeper unless ML opponents figure him out quickly and he fails to adjust. The bomb he hit off Darvish was in on his hands and he crushed the living hell out of it anyway.

Sidenote: Manny Machado winning PotW slashing .307/.494/.516 with 2 homers over Joey Meneses (.550/.591/1.150 with 4 homers) is absolute highway robbery. MLB could’ve brought fans’ attention to a cool feel-good story, but they dropped the ball as usual

There was a piece on mlb.com where each beat writer had to nominate a player for a league-wide award. Cammarato noted just how empty the roster is of legit candidates but put up Meneses for RotY just to mention how good of a start he's had
