Orioles avoid arbitration with Adam Jones

The Orioles announced this evening that they had agreed to terms with center fielder Adam Jones on a contract for 2012, avoiding arbitration. Jones, the last member of the team that was arbitration-eligible, was scheduled to go to arbitration with the O’s on Friday. He had previously submitted an offer of $7.4 million, whereas the O’s submitted $5 million. The two decided to settle at $6.15 million and call it a day.
