Free agent Nelson Cruz and the Baltimore Orioles have reached agreement on a one-year deal, giving the slugger a fresh start after his drug suspension. A person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press on Saturday that Cruz will earn about $8.5 million, and can make more in performance bonuses. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract wasnt complete. Other media outlets had reported a deal was in place. The 33-year-old Cruz was suspended 50 games last year while with the Texas Rangers as a result of Major League Baseballs investigation into the Biogenesis drug scandal. He returned from the penalty in time to play one game -- he went 0 for 4 in the Rangers loss to Tampa Bay in a tiebreaker for the second AL wild-card spot. Baltimore began full-squad workouts at spring training earlier this week, and Cruz was among the last prominent free agents to find a team. Manager Buck Showalters team opened camp still in need of a designated hitter, preferably someone to join big league home run champion Chris Davis in the lineup. Cruz may well find the cozy dimensions at Camden Yards to his liking -- he is a career .333 hitter with two homers and nine RBIs in 81 at-bats at the ballpark. Baltimore signed Delmon Young to a minor league contract in the off-season, and also was looking at free agent Kendrys Morales. Cruz, a two-time All-Star in the outfield, is expected to become Baltimores DH. If so, he could be the Orioles 12th different opening day DH in 12 years. Cruz hit .266 with 27 homers and 76 RBIs in 109 games last year. Hes averaged 27 homers in the last five seasons. The Orioles finished 85-77 last season, a year after they made their first playoff appearance since 1997. Danny Valencia was most often in the DH spot, starting 38 times and hitting .304 overall with eight homers and 23 RBIs. Baltimore traded Valencia to Kansas City for David Lough in December.

Colorado led 2-1 heading into the second period, when Cam Fowler and Hampus Lindholm notched goals. Jason LaBarbera stopped five of his 16 shots in the third to preserve the win for Anaheim, which has won three of its last four games. LaBarbera, recalled from AHL Norfolk earlier in the day, started in net for the Ducks after a sudden lower-body injury to John Gibson during warmups left them in a pickle. I jumped on the plane just expecting to back up tonight. I guess its better not to have to think about it, LaBarbera said. I have not played a game in the NHL in over a year, so this was great. Because their other goaltender, Frederik Andersen, is day-to-day with a leg injury, the Ducks turned to goaltending consultant Dwayne Roloson as their backup in an emergency substitution allowed under NHL rules. Roloson, 45, played 14 NHL seasons for six different teams, last taking the ice for Tampa Bay during the 2011-12 season. Ryan Getzlaff dished out two assists in the triumph. Nathan MacKinnon and Dennis Everberg tallied for the Avalanche, who have dropped four of their last five games.dddddddddddd Semyon Varlamov made 30 saves in defeat. We were just not sustaining any pressure, Colorado center John Mitchell said. The Ducks went ahead in the second after outshooting Colorado 12-2. Patrick Maroon sent a pass from behind the net into the slot for Lindholm, who wristed it home to tie the game at 6:04. Less than two minutes later, Fowlers backhander put the Ducks in front. Everberg and MacKinnon sandwiched their goals around Perrys marker. Everberg opened the scoring with a sharp angle wrister from the left side that got past LaBarbera just 2:18 into the game. Perrys goal came when he drove to the net and ripped a shot that ricocheted off Varlamov, bounced off Perry and went into the net. MacKinnons wrister from the right circle with less than a minute left gave Colorado its 2-1 advantage. Game Notes Varlamov played in his third game in four nights and has now faced 73 short- handed shots without allowing a goal ... Everberg posted his first career point ... Lindholm scored for the first time in 20 games. ' ' '
