ARLINGTON, Texas -- Suspended Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz started workouts at the club's spring training complex in Surprise, Ariz., on Wednesday as he prepares to possibly rejoin the team if it makes the playoffs.

Cruz, suspended for the final 50 games of the regular season after being linked to the Miami-based Biogenesis Clinic, went through full defensive drills and batting practice with the players who are on injury rehabilitation.

The Rangers said he will continue workouts tomorrow.

The Rangers have not made a commitment to Cruz on whether he'll return if they do see the postseason. Texas has lost nine of its past 12 games and has struggled offensively, scoring its most runs in a 7-5 loss Wednesday to the Pittsburgh Pirates since it also scored five runs Aug. 21 against the Houston Astros.
