OAKLAND, Calif. -- Nelson Cruz remained in the lineup Sunday against the Oakland A's, despite a lingering quad bruise that makes it difficult for him to run. Cruz, though, will start at designated hitter instead of right field. He'll bat sixth in the order. Left-hander Derek Holland (8-6, 3.18) will start for the Texas Rangers and face A's right-hander A.J. Griffin (10-7, 3.90).
