Cruz is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

Cruz was not in the lineup Friday and now he'll sit for the second time in three days. He's not reported to be dealing with any sort of injury at this point, but the Twins are likely being cautious with the slugger since he dealt with a wrist issue in late May. Jorge Polanco will shift to designated hitter as Nick Gordon mans second base Sunday.
