Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports that the Orioles have reached an agreement with Nelson Cruz on a one-year, $8 million contract.

The deal is pending a physical which he'll undergo on Sunday, and also includes an additional $750,000 that can be earned in incentives. The 33-year-old slugger will likely see most of his time as the Orioles designated hitter, and should have plenty of RBI chances in the middle of a strong O's lineup.

Drew Smyly dominated the Orioles in Tuesday's win, striking out 10 across seven scoreless innings.

Smyly scattered four hits and a walk along with the 10 strikeouts in a dominating performance -- his best of the season. His results have been mixed in four starts since coming off of the disabled list, but overall has a 3.11 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP and a 42/8 K/BB ratio over 37 2/3 innings. Smyly will look to keep it going next week in Detroit against the Tigers.

J.P. Arencibia had himself a ballgame, going 3-for-4 with a home run and six RBI in Tuesday's rout of the Orioles.

Oddly enough, six RBI isn't even a career-high for Arencibia. He knocked in seven last season for the Rangers and six back in 2012 for the Blue Jays. The catcher plated two with a single in the fourth inning, another two with another single in the fifth, then tacked on a two-run home run in the seventh. Arencibia had singled twice in nine at-bats across five games in the big leagues entering the night. With Curt Casali sidelined, he will start every two or three days along with Rene Rivera.

Justin Nicolino spun seven scoreless innings versus the Braves in Tuesday's win.

Nicolino scattered six hits and two walks while striking out three. Only one of the hits went for extra bases. The young lefty has been solid in five of his seven starts this year and now carries a 3.07 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and a 15/13 K/BB ratio over 44 innings. Nicolino will look to keep it going when he squares off against the Brewers at home next week.

Rick Porcello struck out 13 batters, but allowed three runs (one earned) in eight innings to lose to the Yankees on Tuesday.

Porcello was hurt by a Travis Shaw fielding error that extended the fifth inning and eventually led to the Yankees' first two runs. He yielded one more run in the eighth on a Brett Gardner solo homer. Overall, the right-hander gave up five hits and a walk along with the 13 punch-outs. So far, so good for Porcello in his first two starts back from the disabled list, as he tossed seven scoreless frames his last time out against the White Sox. He'll look to keep it going in a home start against the Blue Jays next.

Scott Feldman left Tuesday's start against the Mariners with right shoulder discomfort.

Feldman might have been pitching hurt all night, as he entered the game on a hot streak and then proceeded to allow three runs on three hits and five walks over 2 2/3 frames. It's unclear at this point whether he'll be sent for an MRI, but it would seem likely. The Astros should have more on his status after the game.

CBS Sport' Jon Heyman reports that Tim Lincecum will visit hip specialist Dr. Marc Philippon on Wednesday and a determination will be made whether he needs surgery.

Lincecum has already seen multiple doctors and has been diagnosed with a degenerative hip condition in both hips. Heyman says the righty "hasn't been experiencing severe pain," but he "has been hampered by an instability" in his hips. Lincecum has reportedly been told by doctors that he could be ready for spring training if he has the procedure and "they've further suggested that he should be able to return to form," according to Heyman. The righty will be a free agent this winter.

Brandon Crawford is not available to play Tuesday due to a bruised calf.

Crawford was hit in the calf by a pitch Monday and it swelled up on him overnight. It's merely a day-to-day ailment. Ehire Adrianza is at shortstop in Crawford's place.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) said he felt "not 100 percent" during a rehab game with High-A Jupiter and is not expected to be activated on Friday as hoped.

Well, that's a bummer. Stanton's progress from surgery to remove the hamate bone in his left hand has been slow, but it had appeared he turned a corner. However, clearly he's still not ready to return to the majors just yet. His fantasy owners will have to continue to wait.
Sep 1 - 8:18 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that Johnny Giavotella (illness) has made "very little progress" and he's not sure when the second baseman will return.

Giavotella has been nursing an undisclosed illness and it appears he's having trouble kicking it. He will rejoin the club on Friday, but as to when he'll be activated is totally up in the air. The Angels are using Grant Green at second base.
Sep 1 - 8:13 PM

MRIs on Miguel Gonzalez's right elbow and shoulder showed only inflammation.

Gonzalez has dealt with shoulder soreness for a little while and thinks he might have caused an elbow injury but compensating for it. However, the good news is that he's not dealing with any structural issues. The right-hander is expected to miss at least one turn but should rejoin the Orioles' rotation at some point later this month.
Sep 1 - 7:46 PM

Angels activated 3B David Freese from the 15-day disabled list.

Freese's return from a non-displaced fracture in his right index finger took much longer than expected, but he's finally ready to go. He'll return to a .240/.309/.397 batting line with 11 homers and is back at third base Tuesday.
