[6/18/2016] Luis Cruz set to return after additional tests in the United States

Luis Cruz was taken off the active roster on June 11, most likely because of lingering pain in his left ankle. He left for the United States for second opinions on June 14. His tests ended on June 17. He is now expected to return to Japan to start a rehab program.

Cruz opted for nonsurgical treatment and will probably require about a month for a recovery.
