New Oriole Nelson Cruz wants to put Biogenesis behind him
Veteran slugger served 50-game drug suspension last year
When it comes to his 50-game drug suspension, Nelson Cruz didn't have much to say during his introduction by the Baltimore Orioles.
Cruz gave short answers to any Biogenesis-related questions during a news conference Tuesday, a day after the 33-year-out outfielder finalized an $8 million, one-year contract.
Cruz says "whatever happened in the past, I look to move forward and have a great year with the Baltimore Orioles."
Cruz was suspended for 50 games last August while with Texas for a violation of Major League Baseball's drug agreement related to the sport's investigation of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic.
