Player Notes
Orioles and LHP Zach Britton avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.75 million contract.

Advice: It's the exact midpoint between the figures that each side filed at. With Britton now under contract, the Orioles have settled with all of their arbitration-eligible players. The 28-year-old has developed into one of the top closers in the league, coming off a phenomenal 2015 campaign where he posted a 1.92 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 79/14 K/BB ratio across 65 2/3 innings.

Zach Britton and the Orioles have an arbitration hearing set for February 17.

Advice: Now that the Orioles and Brian Matusz have come to an agreement, Britton is the team's last remaining arbitration case. The closer requested $7.9 million and was offered $5.6 million by Baltimore when figures were exchanged last month. There's still a chance they could settle before a hearing.
