The Orioles will not go to an arbitration hearing with any of their players for the second consecutive year.

They settled Thursday night with catcher Matt Wieters on a $7.7 million contract for 2014. The deal includes incentives based on whether he wins certain awards, such as the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger.

Wieters had filed for $8.75 million, and the Orioles had countered with $6.5 million. If they hadn’t reached an agreement, the two sides would have had an arbitration hearing Feb. 12 in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The Orioles avoided that and now have taken a player to a hearing just once Brad Bergesen, in 2012 since 2007.

Wieters, 27, made $5.5 million in 2013, when he hit .235 with a .287 on-base percentage, 22 homers and 79 RBIs in 148 games. He was a finalist for a Gold Glove, but did not win.

Wieters isn't a free agent until after the 2015 season. He and the Orioles have not yet discussed a possible contract extension.

CBS Sports first reported the amount of the settlement.
