The Orioles, building on their early-season momentum have signed center fielder Adam Jones to a club-record contract extension.
Jones signed a six-year, $85.5 million contract with the Orioles on Sunday, ensuring that the 26-year-old center fielder will stay with the team through 2018.
The deal is well north of the two largest deals in team history -- Miguel Tejada's six-year...
The Baltimore Orioles and the agent for center fielder Adam Jones are discussing an extension for the one-time All-Star, whose contract expires after this season.
Jones confirmed Friday that his representative, Nez Balelo, was in Baltimore. Jones also said he's taken a physical, a prerequisite to a contract extension.
But he could not confirm an agreement.
According to MASNSports.com's Steve Melewski, the Orioles are implementing six-man rotations in their farm system from AA down:The Orioles seem to really like the fact that their starters can get two bullpen or side sessions between starts in a six-man and feel that is a good way right now for some of their young hurlers to get their work in and make improvements to their game...
Orioles fans have been clamoring for it all season, and the team seems to have finally locked up Adam Jones with a contract extension. I was a little worried that they would feel they "had" to keep Jones, and end up giving him a Matt Kemp type deal (8 years, $160 M), but was looking at 6 years, $80-90 M myself. Actual contract; 6 years, $85 M. Nicely done, Orioles...
Sorry to have fallen off the face of the Earth the last couple of days; I've been working like a maniac trying to put together a talk for a conference next week and there just aren't hours in the day sometimes. The Pirates DFA'd Nate McLouth today, which pretty much anyone anywhere could've seen coming, and replaced him with Matt Hague. Hague probably won't help...
Baltimore Centerfielder & standout Adam Jones has signed a 6 year extension with the Orioles. The deal is the largest in franchise history & makes Jones the 2nd highest paid CF in baseball (Matt Kemp).
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Jason Hammel pitched six shutout innings, Chris Davis homered and drove in three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles cruised past the Kansas City Royals 8-2 on Friday night.
Adam Jones and J.J. Hardy had two RBIs apiece for the Orioles, now 28-1 when hitting a home run. Davis hit Baltimore's league-leading 70th homer of the season in the seventh inning with a man...
The Baltimore Orioles have hit a bit of a rough patch.
Facing the struggling Toronto Blue Jays might help them get back on track.
The visiting Orioles look to avoid matching a season high with their third straight loss Monday night by handing the Blue Jays a sixth consecutive defeat.
Baltimore (29-19) held a two-game lead atop the AL East on May 19 while riding a five-game winning...
Roy Oswalt is getting closer to signing a contract, and while his reported preference is to pitch for one of the Rangers, Cardinals or Braves, the surprising first-place Orioles are quickly emerging as a dark horse candidate for his services. The Orioles may have lost a recent waiver claim to the Rangers based on their better record — which is still strange to type — but an aggressive...
Hooray! This won’t turn around the Pirates’ offensive woes, of course, but everyone was growing tiresome of seeing Nate on the team. Hague was not hitting particularly well in Indianapolis, but certainly will be a much better option as a pinch-hitter than McLouth was.
