Orioles, O'Day Agree To Two-Year Deal
The Orioles and Darren O'Day have agreed to a two-year deal with a club option, according to the Beverly Hills Sports Council (on Twitter). In a radio interview earlier today, O's GM Dan Duquette said that he had struck an agreement on a one-year pact to avoid arbitration with O'Day but was working on a two-year agreement.
The two-year deal covers O'Day's remaining years of arbitration, putting him in line to test free agency after the 2014 season. O'Day, who had previously earned Super Two status, filed for $3.2MM this winter while the O's offered $1.8MM.
With O'Day signed, the Orioles have now taken care of all of their arbitration eligible players. Baltimore took care of two in one day on Friday as they agreed to deals with Jason Hammel and Jim Johnson.
