Davis-Orioles talks only in early stage Notes

January 18, 1991

Baltimore Orioles president Larry Lucchino acknowledged yesterday that club officials are having conversations with the representatives of Glenn Davis, but he wouldn't go beyond that.

Negotiations for a contract for Davis between the Orioles and Robert Fraley and Michael Moye of Orlando, Fla., apparently are only in a preliminary stage.

Davis, who made nearly $2 million with the Houston Astros last year, has filed for salary arbitration and could go that route before serious talks begin on a long-term deal.

* YANKEES: Center fielder Roberto Kelly, who was third in the American League in stolen bases last season with 42, tripled his salary when he agreed to a one-year contract worth $900,000.

There remain 152 major-league players who have filed for salary arbitration. Players and clubs will exchange figures this afternoon.

* ANGELS: Free-agent right-hander Jeff Robinson agreed to a one-year contract, with a club option for 1992. Robinson was 3-6 with a 3.45 ERA in 50 relief appearances and four starts for the Yankees last season.
