All-Star RF Cruz out of Texas lineup with migraine

All-Star right fielder Nelson Cruz is out of the Texas Rangers' lineup because of a migraine headache.

Leonys Martin took over in right field Friday night when the Rangers played Baltimore in their first game after the All-Star break.

Craig Gentry was in the starting lineup in center field in his first game since coming off the disabled list. He had been out since June 21 with a fractured left hand.

Jeff Baker also was back in the lineup, as the designated hitter. Baker had been out since June 13 with a sprained right thumb, which he hurt after an over-exuberant high five with a still unidentified teammate that bent Baker's thumb back to his wrist.

Texas optioned right-hander Wilmer Font and catcher-infielder Robinson Chirinos to Triple-A Round Rock.
