Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz suffered a bruised left elbow after he was hit by a pitch on Tuesday.
Cruz exited an exhibition contest versus the Mexico City Red Devils after he was hit by Rolando Valdez.
The pitch was the second in a week that hit Cruz, who is day-to-day with a bruise. He was also plunked during a game against the Kansas City Royals last Wednesday.
Signed to a two-year deal worth $16 million in the offseason, Cruz batted .263 with 29 homers and a career-high 87 RBIs in 124 games in 2011.
He was also named MVP of the American League Championship Series after swatting six homers and driving in 13 runs against the Detroit Tigers.
