SURPRISE, Ariz. - Texas Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz has been hospitalized over what team doctors diagnosed as a muscle strain in his chest.
Assistant general manager Thad Levine said Friday that Cruz was sent to a hospital to rule out anything more serious than a muscle problem.
The 32-year-old Cruz played a career-high 159 games last season, hitting .260 with 24 home runs and 90 RBIs.
