The 31-year-old Cruz was a key cog in the Rangers postseason run last season. During the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers, he belted six home runs and 13 RBIs – both major league records for a playoff series.

Texas acquired Cruz from the Milwaukee Brewers on July 28th, 2006.
