SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — 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.
