Davis gets $3.2 million

February 12, 1991

The Orioles avoided arbitration today with newly acquired Glenn Davis, signing him to a club record $3.275 million contract for 1991.

Davis made $1.985 million last year and had asked for $3.65 million, while the Orioles offered $2.9 million. The figures represented the highest ever submitted for arbitration by a team and a player. Davis' salary puts him ahead of Cal Ripken, who will draw $2.3 million in the last year of his contract.
