Nelson Cruz was activated off the DL and played last night against the Royals. He had a double in his first at-bat and scored the first run of the game for the Rangers in a 3-0 win. Cruz' return means Julio Borbon and David Murphy will be rotating in the 3rd outfield spot.
Derek Holland is supposed to get the start Friday because the Rich Harden woodshed treatment didn't take. Harden did throw nicely in a start last week, but gave up 4 runs in 4 1/3 innings Saturday. The Rangers have banished him to the bullpen so it remains to be seen how that turns out.
Last, but not least, the Rangers intend to move their AAA affiliate to Round Rock, Tx (near Austin) from Oklahoma City. That may not matter to many, but I have family in Round Rock and now I may have an excuse to go visit them.
