Nelson Cruz out for a few games

Nelson Cruz is apparently going to be out for a few games, after spraining his ankle on the last play of last night's game, but the Rangers are hoping he'll be back quickly so they aren't putting him on the disabled list just yet.

That said, Cruz being out means that the bench now consists of Joaquin Arias and whichever catcher isn't starting, so I wouldn't be surprised if, after tonight's Derek Holland start, a pitcher gets sent down so that Brandon Boggs can come back up.

I think it goes without saying that Cruz's bat and glove have both been huge for the Rangers this year, and the team can't afford to have him out for long.
