 SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Texas Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz was cleared of more serious issues Friday after team doctors diagnosed a muscle strain in his chest.
Assistant general manager Thad Levine said Cruz was sent to a hospital to rule out anything else. The Rangers later said in a statement that several tests were negative and Cruz was being released after a stress test, which general manager Jon Daniels said he passed.
Cruz can resume baseball activities Saturday.
``I think our guys made the right call,'' Daniels said. ``Better safe than sorry to have him checked out.''
Daniels said Cruz's status for the World Baseball Classic will depend on how he feels Saturday. Cruz was set to leave Sunday to join the Dominican Republic for the WBC.
The 32-year-old Cruz leads the Rangers with five RBIs this spring training, although he's hitting just .214. He played a career-high 159 games last season, hitting .260 with 24 home runs and 90 RBIs.
