Orioles Add Nelson Cruz

The Orioles again made a late splash in free-agency by signing outfielder / designated hitter Nelson Cruz to a one-year deal worth $8 million.

Cruz, 33, batted .266 with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs with the Texas Rangers last season. Cruz appeared in 109 games before a 50 game Performance Enhancing Drugs suspension ended his season.

The addition of Cruz adds a legitimate power threat to an already imposing Orioles lineup.
