"I understand it's part of the game, something that comes and goes," Cruz said.
Cruz said he has been working with Coolbaugh on his front foot. Cruz said he has been landing flat-footed and it's causing him to lunge at the ball. In doing so, he has been unable to reach the outside pitch.
"I felt good yesterday," Cruz said. "I didn't get any hits, but it's just a matter of time to get it done."
