Orioles agree to terms with Wieters, Davis Patton, and Matusz

The Orioles today announced that they have agreed to terms with CA Matt Wieters, INF Chris Davis, and LHPs Troy Patton and Brian Matusz on one-year contracts, thus avoiding arbitration.

 

            Wieters, 26, batted .249 (131-526) and set career-highs with 23 home runs, 83 RBI and 144 games played. Wieters was named to his second All-Star Team.

           

            Davis, 26, batted .270 (139-515) with a team-leading 33 home runs and 85 RBI in 2012. Davis saw action in left field, right field, at first base, served as the designated hitter and recorded a win in his only appearance as a pitcher, May 6 at Boston.

 

            Patton, 27, was 1-0 with a 2.43 ERA (55.2IP, 15ER) in a career-high 54 games for the Orioles in 2012.

 

            Matusz, 25, was 6-10 with a 4.87 ERA (98.0IP, 53ER) in 34 games (16 starts) for the Orioles. In his 18 relief appearances in 2012, Matusz was 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA (13.1IP, 2ER).

 

            The Orioles have exchanged salary arbitration figures with RHPs Jim Johnson, Jason Hammel and Darren O'Day.
