Rangers Place Nelson Cruz And His Boomstick On Disabled List

Jeff Wilson reports that the Rangers have moved Nelson Cruz to the disabled list to protect his hamstring.

An MRI on Sunday revealed no tear but inflammation in and around the muscle. The move is retroactive to Sunday, so Cruz can come off the DL on Aug. 30.

The Rangers have recalled Joaquin Arias to take his place on the bench, but Brandon Boggs will start for Cruz tonight.

This is Cruz's third trip to the DL this season.
