Report: Orioles Sign OF Nelson Cruz to One-Year $8M Deal

Nelson Cruz


After spending months watching free agency from the dugout, the Baltimore Orioles have decided to join in the action in the bottom of the ninth.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Orioles have signed free-agent outfielder Nelson Cruz to a one-year deal.

With this addition the Orioles’ offense just got a whole lot scarier. As for Cruz, he’ll be looking to secure a long-term deal after the season so it wouldn’t be surprising if he had a monster year.
