Orioles settle with O'Day; five still arbitration eligible

The next Orioles deadline of note is Tuesday at noon, when the club officially exchanges figures with its arbitration eligible players.

They had seven arbitration-eligible players for whom they offered contracts – and five remain unsigned.

The Orioles agreed to a $1.35 million deal with reliever Darren O’Day, whom the Orioles claimed off waivers from the Texas Rangers this offseason. O’Day received a $100,000 bump.

The club also settled with lefty Dana Eveland, acquired in December from the Los Angeles Dodgers. He agreed to a $750,000 deal.

The five others are: pitchers Jeremy Guthrie, Jim Johnson, Brad Bergesen, infielder Robert Andino and outfielder Adam Jones.

If they don’t settle, the sides will file arbitration figures Tuesday in preparation for a hearing – in February – in which an independent arbiter chooses one number or the other. The sides can negotiate up until the hearing, and often do.

The Orioles have not gone to arbitration with a player since beating former pitcher Rodrigo Lopez before the 2006 season.
