ARLINGTON -- Nelson Cruz said he has not heard from MLB regarding a possible suspension for his connections to the Biogenesis of America scandal, and has not made up his mind whether to appeal or serve it, should one be handed down to him.
Cruz, as he's done all season, didn't say much regarding the matter after the Rangers' 14-11 walk-off victory over the Angels on Tuesday.
"My only thing here is to play baseball," Cruz said. "I don't have control of that."
There have been multiple reports saying that MLB could announce suspensions of players linked to Biogenesis by the end of the week, if not sooner.
Cruz is one of those players, and has been in contact with his agent on a daily basis as to how they might want to handle a possible suspension. No final decision, Cruz said, has been made.
Cruz left Tuesday's game with a bruised left quad in the eighth inning. He initally injured it when he was hit by a throw while beating out a double-play grounder in the third inning. He stayed in the game, but was pulled after drawing a two-out walk in the eighth inning.
