Nelson Cruz is currently on the injured list with a wrist ailment that also forced him to miss time earlier in the season, but the Minnesota Twins slugger got some good news after visiting with a specialist on Monday.

Cruz has been diagnosed with a ruptured ECU tendon in his left wrist, which probably sounds a lot worse than it is. Fortunately, a doctor did not find any additional damage on Monday, and he will not need to undergo surgery. It sounds like the 39-year-old should return sooner rather than later.
