1057topper Orioles Reach Agreement With Davis, 4 Others

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with home run king Chris Davis for $10.35 million, avoiding arbitration.

Davis led the majors last season with 53 home runs and 138 RBIs, both career highs. He earned $3.3 million.

Davis, 27, played in 160 games, batted .286, had 167 hits and scored 103 runs.

The Orioles also reached an agreement Friday with arbitration-eligible pitchers Tommy Hunter, Bud Norris, Brian Matusz and Troy Patton.

Hunter was 6-5 with a 2.81 ERA in a career-high 68 games for the Orioles in 2013.

After coming to Baltimore in a trade with Houston, Norris went 4-3 in 11 games. Matusz and Patton, both left-handers, pitched out of the bullpen.

The Orioles have exchanged arbitration figures with catcher Matt Wieters, offering $6.5 million while he’s seeking $8.75 million.
