Right-hander Rhiner Cruz appears close to rejoining the Astros' bullpen after throwing one inning in his second Minor League rehab stint for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, allowing one hit and one run. Manager Brad Mills watched the game on the internet and said Cruz, who's been out with a sprained ankle, looked good while throwing 12 pitches. Cruz hasn't pitching since April 23 and would be eligible to be activated Wednesday.
