Orioles, Andino Agree On 1-Year Deal
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles and infielder Robert Andino have agreed to terms on a 1-year deal, avoiding arbitration.
Andino, 27, had his best season in 2011, playing the majority of his career-high 139 games at second base for the injured Brian Roberts. He also played third base, shortstop and left field.
Andino set career highs with 457 at-bats, 120 hits, 63 runs, five homers and 36 RBIs.
The agreement leaves three Orioles still in the running for arbitration: center fielder Adam Jones and starting pitchers Jeremy Guthrie and Brad Bergesen.
