ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Nelson Cruz is back in the Texas Rangers' lineup after missing more than two weeks with a sprained left ankle.

Cruz was activated from the 15-day disabled list and inserted into the starting lineup in right field for Thursday night's game against Minnesota. He entered hitting .269 with 25 homers and 58 RBIs on the year.

Cruz got hurt chasing a game-winning hit by Oakland's Rajai Davis on Aug. 3. He was 0 for 10 with a walk in a three-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

To make room for Cruz, the Rangers sent right-hander Guillermo Moscoso to Oklahoma City. The reliever didn't appear in two games since being recalled Tuesday.
