Third baseman Leo Gomez and second baseman Bret Barberie, who opened the 1995 season as half of the Orioles' starting infield, agreed to minor-league contracts with the Chicago Cubs yesterday and were invited to major-league spring training camp.Gomez, 29, batted .236 with four home runs and 12 RBIs during a disappointing season in which he lost his place in the starting lineup to journeyman Jeff Manto in May and suffered a season-ending ankle injury in August. The Orioles toyed with the idea of signing him to a Triple-A contract this off-season, but the acquisition of free agent B. J. Surhoff left little room for him on the major-league roster.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Ever since 1983, when he broke in with the Oakland Athletics, Bill Krueger has been a baseball mystery.He has logged more than seven years of major-league service over that period -- but only once (1991) did he spend an entire year on an active roster. It's also the only time he's pitched more than 151 innings (175) at the highest level.Krueger's left-handedness has both intrigued and baffled the four teams for which he has played as well as numerous others who have had interest, including the Orioles.

The Orioles' front office continues to forge ahead with a wide-ranging improvement program, though the club probably won't be able to top the acquisitions of free agents Sid Fernandez and Rafael Palmeiro.Two more free-agent contracts were finalized yesterday. Right-handed reliever Mark Eichhorn and veteran catcher Rich Gedman agreed to minor-league contracts and will report to spring training with the major-league team.Eichhorn, 33, is a nine-year veteran who has pitched for three major-league clubs, most recently with the two-time world champion Toronto Blue Jays.
