Nelson Cruz to stay in playing shape

Nelson Cruz may or may not be welcomed back to the Rangers when his suspension is up (and if the Rangers make the playoffs) but he’s not giving up on the idea:

 

There were reports last week that it was unlikely Cruz and Jhonny Peralta would be back with their teams for the postseason. I can’t see why on Earth either the Rangers or Tigers would make that decision now, when so much could happen between now and the end of September.

White Sox first baseman José Abreu underwent lower abdominal surgery on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It was an outpatient procedure that is expected to keep him away from baseball activity for two weeks.

Abreu, 31, was held out of Tuesday’s lineup, his first day off in more than two months. This season, Abreu has hit a productive .272/.331/.491 with 22 home runs and 78 RBI in 526 plate appearances.

The White Sox will likely play Matt Davidson at first base and put Daniel Palka at DH while Abreu is out.
