by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals catcher Tony Cruz was able to take batting practice Wednesday, according to MLB.com.

Cruz was activated from the disabled list September 1, but isn't ready to play yet. Cruz has been dealing with a stress fracture in his forearm, and has been out since August 14. Cruz plans to take early indoor batting practice Thursday, with hopes of again taking batting practice on the field with the team.

Cruz is hitting .212/.257/.303 in 99 at-bats.

Cardinals activate Tony Cruz off 15-day DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals activated catcher Tony Cruz (forearm) off the 15-day disabled list Sunday. Cruz, who has been sidelined since mid-August, is batting .212 with one home run and 11 RBI in 41 games.

Cruz has not swung a bat and might not do so until Wednesday or Thursday. His forearm feels better, but since he can't hit, Cruz is only available in an emergency, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Forearm injury lands Tony Cruz on DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals placed catcher Tony Cruz on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a stress fracture in his left forearm. Cruz, who had filled in as the starting catcher with Yadier Molina (knee) sidelined, hit .225 with one home run, two doubles and five RBI in 12 August games (10 starts).

Cruz has been playing with a microfracture in his left forearm for nearly two months, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The Cardinals said it got worse with increased playing time and at-bats.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Cruz will rest for 7-10 days before being re-evaluated. The team does expect Cruz to return to action in September.
