Rangers place Nelson Cruz on the disabled list

Nelson Cruz headshot.jpgNelson Cruz has had a heck of a time with his hamstring lately. He had to leave games in Boston last Tuesday and Wednesday because the
hamstring tightened up on him, and after some time in and out of lineup since then, he had to leave last night’s game against the Tigers in the sixth inning
after re-aggravating it.

While there was some optimism after last night’s game — he had iced the hammy and said it felt better — the Rangers placed him on the 15-day disabled list today.

Bad break for the Rangers, as Cruz had been killing the ball in April, hitting .323/.419/.758 with seven homers, 17 RBI and five stolen
bases.
