Rays reliever Juan Cruz was assigned to the Stone Crabs yesterday for a rehab assignment. Cruz has been on the Rays 15-day DL since July 18 with a strained groin. He pitch a scoreless inning last night for the Stone Crabs.
Cruz is an 11 year major league veteran having spent time with the Cubs, Braves, Athletics, Diamondbacks and Royals. He was signed by the Rays as a free agent prior to the start of the 2011 season.
