Cruz eyeing early next week for return
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."
