Outfielder Nelson Cruz hopes to start taking batting practice on Saturday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a strained right hamstring.
"It's feeling a little better," said Cruz, whose .758 slugging percentage will end up being tied for the second highest for the month of April in club history.
Right now, Cruz has been playing some catch and doing some leg work on both a stationary bicycle and the treadmill.
OAKLAND -- Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz is reporting significant improvement in his strained right hamstring and is hoping to go on a medical rehabilitation assignment later this week or over the weekend.
Cruz has been taking batting practice and working on his defense. On Monday, he tested the muscle with a series of sprints before the Rangers' game with the Oakland Athletics.
"I feel like I'm running about 70 percent," Cruz said. "I still feel it a little bit, but the more I do and the more I get warmed up, the less I feel it. My last couple of sprints, I didn't feel it at all."
