Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz left Tuesday night's 14-11 win over the Los Angeles Angels with a bruised left quadriceps muscle.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- There's a lot going on with Nelson Cruz.

The Texas Rangers' All-Star right fielder left Tuesday's 14-11 win over the Los Angeles Angels in the eighth inning with a bruised left quadriceps muscle. He was hit there by a throw while running out a ground ball in the third inning. The quad tightened up.

"It just cramped up on me," Cruz said, adding that he will be able to play Wednesday.

Of course, Cruz also has the Biogenesis case hanging over him. On Tuesday, Major League Baseball informed the players' association which players would be suspended for their connections to the case, The Associated Press reported. The suspensions are expected by the end of the week.

Cruz, one of the most prominent names involved with the Miami-based clinic, said after Tuesday's game that he has not been told anything about a possible suspension.

"Not yet," he said.

Cruz said he has been in contact with agent.

"We keep in touch," Cruz said. "At the moment, I can't make any comment."
