New deal for Brady?

February 14, 1993|By Peter Schmuck

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA — NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- The Orioles apparently have made a multi-year contract proposal to outfielder Brady Anderson, but club officials would not comment on the situation.

Anderson, who recently signed a one-year contract worth $1.855 million, said Thursday that the negotiations have commenced that could lead to a long-term contract with the club. He also indicated that the team had made a preliminary three-year proposal.

General manager Roland Hemond did not dispute the revelation, but he declined to confirm or deny that negotiations are in progress with agent Dennis Gilbert and his associates.

"We usually don't discuss our contract negotiations," Hemond said, "and we don't report on the progress of negotiations. You saw that during the Cal Ripken negotiations."

The Orioles managed to sign all three of their salary arbitration-eligible players without going to an arbitration hearing, but there is nothing to prevent the club from resuming negotiations with any signed player.
