Orioles, Sherrill come to terms

Sun baseball writer Jeff Zrebiec just clued me in on the news that the Orioles have come to terms with reliever George Sherrill (right) on a one-year, $2.75 million deal, averting and arbitration showdown with their last arbitration-eligible player. Sherrill was asking for $3.4 million and the Orioles were offering $2.2 million. The final number was $50,000 below the midpoint.

Sherrill saved 31 games last year after being acquired from the Seattle Mariners in the Erik Bedard deal. He made the American League All-Star team and pitched well on the national stage, but his numbers declined due to a tired arm during the final two months of the 2008 season.
