Cruz day to day with broken finger
Cruz, who finished second in the Home Run Derby at the All-Star Game, was taken out of Sunday's lineup about an hour before the game. He hurt his finger in the ninth inning Saturday diving into first base after avoiding a tag.
Tests revealed the fracture, though the Rangers said Cruz was day to day and could be available as a pinch hitter depending on his pain tolerance.
Cruz is second in the American League with 23 home runs.
