Cruz out of lineup, Gwynn misses workouts


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Dodgers third baseman Luis Cruz was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup against the Giants with flu-like symptoms and outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. was held out of workouts to nurse a sore left groin muscle.

Cruz came off the field midway through morning workouts because of a nauseous stomach. Juan Uribe, originally scheduled to serve as the designated hitter, started at third base for Cruz with Tim Federowicz as the DH.

Gwynn, who walked twice, stole a base and was caught stealing in Monday's 7-6 win over the Cubs, said the groin injury is not related to the sports hernia that nagged him all of last season.
