Orioles Orioles reach deal with Jones, avoid arbitration

Quote:
The Orioles avoided arbitration with center fielder Adam Jones Tuesday night, with the two sides agreeing to a one-year deal and staying away from a potentially contentious hearing that had been scheduled for Friday.

The 26-year-old Jones -- named the Most Valuable Oriole in 2011 -- will earn a base salary of $6.15 million with $50,000 in performance-based bonuses, a figure that is just shy of the midpoint between the two sides. The Orioles originally offered $5 million, while Jones' camp at CAA Sports countered with $7.4 million.

"He was our player of the year last year," executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said of Jones, who set new career highs in games played (151), doubles (26), home runs (25), RBIs (83) and stolen bases (12). "He's a dependable player and we're glad to have him."
