Nelson Cruz For the third time this season, Nelson Cruz is headed to the disabled list -- and for a strained left hamstring for the second time.

An MRI on Sunday revealed no tear, but inflammation in and around the muscle.

His first trip the DL was in April with a strained right hamstring.

When he's not on the DL, Cruz is having a great season, hitting .320/.381/.587 with 16 homers and 64 home runs. Between Cruz and Josh Hamilton, the Rangers have two of the most exciting outfielders in the game, yet both have had injury troubles that hurt their value.

The move is retroactive to Sunday, so he's eligible to return on Aug. 30.

The Rangers activated Joaquin Arias from the disabled list.

Cruz on DL for 3rd time this season

Dear editor- 16 HR, and another 64 HR eh? How about 16 HR, and 64 RBI. Let's not forget those super sweet 15 SB

It's a damn shame that Nelson Cruz can't stay healthy. The guy could smash 35 HR, 100 RBI, with 20 SB if he could just avoid having multiple trips to the DL.

I hope that he's fully healthy come the playoffs. A healthy Rangers lineup, that includes, Elvis Andrus, Vladimir Guerrero, Josh Hamilton, Cruz, Micheal Young, and Jorge Cantu is about as good as it gets -after the Yankees of course.
