Cruz (forearm) remains on the bench Saturday against the Tigers.

Cruz exited Thursday's series opener after getting hit in the arm by a pitch. He didn't appear in Friday's contest, though manager Kevin Cash said he was available off the bench. He'll presumably be available again in a similar capacity Saturday, but the Rays evidently feel no rush to get him back in the lineup given their 8.5-game lead in the American League East. Jordan Luplow will be the designated hitter Saturday.
