Cruz on pace to be activated Friday

ARLINGTON -- Nelson Cruz, on medical rehabilitation assignment, was 2-for-4 on Wednesday afternoon and drove in the only run in Triple-A Oklahoma City's 1-0 victory. He went 3-for-9 in his two games for Oklahoma City.

The plan is for him to rejoin the Rangers on Thursday and be activated on Friday. The Rangers want to give him a day off before bringing him off the disabled list. Manager Ron Washington said he still plans to bat Cruz sixth in the order behind Ian Kinsler.
