Rays manager Kevin Cash said Cruz is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays due to an illness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cash added that Cruz will be available off the bench in a pinch-hitting capacity, so the 41-year-old is presumably on track to rejoin the lineup following Thursday's off day. Austin Meadows will handle designated hitter duties Wednesday in Cruz's stead.
