Arlington — The suspense, if there really was any, is over. Nelson Cruz will be in the Rangers' lineup for the Monday tiebreaker with Tampa Bay to determine second wild-card team in the American League.
The Rangers activated Cruz and designated outfielder Joey Butler for assignment to create a 40-man roster spot. Cruz was suspended 50 games Aug. 5 for using a performance-enhancing drug, and the suspension ended after the final out of the 6-2 victory Sunday.
