News: Cruz agreed to a one-year deal with the Cardinals on Thursday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Impact: The deal avoids arbitration and brings Cruz back to St. Louis, where he appeared in 50 games last season as the primary backup to Yadier Molina. The 28-year-old hit just .200/.270/.259 with 17 RBI and 28 strikeouts in 135 at-bats.
