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.
Speaking before the Orioles faced the Kansas City Royals, Jones said of Balelo: ''He's in town now. Hopefully I'll have some good news for you, but right now I don't. I'm sorry.''
Reached by telephone, Balelo said, ''It is our policy not to comment on any contract negotiations.''
Orioles vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said ''nothing is imminent.''
The 26-year-old Jones made the AL All-Star team in 2009. He's batting .311.
