Yesterday, there was some concern about Rangers' outfielder Nelson Cruz, who was sent to the hospital for tests after complaining of chest pain.

Today, Jeff Wilson says that Cruz will be in the Rangers' lineup today for their exhibition game, and will play for the Dominican Republic in the WBC.

Apparently, the pain was just a muscle spasm, and Cruz is fine. Which is good news for a Ranger team that doesn't have much depth in the outfield.
