Nelson Cruz getting ready for rehab work

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz said he's feeling good and hasn't had any issues with his hamstring running the bases the past few days.

He'll test things a little more in the next day or two and is expected to go out for a rehab assignment on Thursday. He would get four games in and then be ready to return Monday in Kansas City, the first day he's eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list with some inflammation in his hamstring.
