Cruz eyeing early next week for return

Cruz eyeing early next week for return

|
OAKLAND -- Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz is hoping to go to the Minor Leagues on a medical rehabilitation assignment on Monday and Tuesday, May 10 and 11, and be activated off the disabled list the following day.

Cruz has been sidelined with a strained right hamstring muscle since April 27 but went through another strenuous workout on Tuesday without any problems.

"It was better than yesterday," said Cruz, who is hitting .323 with seven home runs and 17 RBI, and is eager to get back in the lineup.

"It's been boring going through all the routine and all the rehab process," Cruz said. "Sitting on the bench and watching the game is not fun."
