For Uehara became the FA from Rangers, Orioles showed the policy of former club you belong to the middle to win last season moves. Tighten to 14 consecutive games without conceding a goal regular season, pitching against former club as well as a wild card game. Chief Dan De~yuketto organization is stated "in the middle reliever. Want to aim to win great pitcher. Rated" and. I aim to further strengthen bullpen became a driving force behind the breakthrough this season. Also showed a positive attitude towards the contract and re-motivated "move aggressively" Even Rangers GM Jon Daniels.

The O's could replace him w/Matusz.
I thought Koji was a FA too, But this says different.
osforlife-I'd be satisfied w/Patton where he is now just as you. But if the Orioles want to trade, they have to move somebody or value.Patton fits that bill and we have Matusz to replace him in the pen.

I do believe the Rangers may have the option of tendering him a contract and then Koji could file for the Arbitration process or accept the tendered contract. I do not think he had a written agreement that would allow him to bypass the Arbitration Process. I could be wrong but he has only four years of MLB roster status and would not become a free agent until 2015 with his service time.
