Surprise, AZ (Sports Network) - Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz woke up Friday with soreness in his chest and was sent to an area hospital for tests.

"Nelson Cruz has what we believe to be a muscle strain in the chest," said assistant general manager Thad Levine. "We've just sent him to the hospital to do a battery of tests just to make sure it's not more serious than something muscular."

Cruz, who is set to play for the Dominican Republic in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, hit .260 with 24 home runs and 90 RBI in a career-high 159 games last season.
