 The Orioles have reduced their number of arbitration eligible players to five, agreeing on Thursday with right-hander Bud Norris to a 2014 contract valued at $5.3 million, according to an industry source.  Norris, 28, made $3 million last year when he went 10-12 with a 4.18 ERA in 32 games with the Orioles and Houston Astros. Traded by the Astros for outfielder L.J. Hoes and minor leaguer pitcher Josh Hader on July 31, Norris was 4-3 with a 4.80 ERA in 11 games (nine starts) for the Orioles.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has agreed to a $519,000 contract renewal for 2014 -- slightly above this year's league minimum of $500,000 -- but the 21-year-old is somewhat disappointed with the figure. Machado will also receive an additional $100,000 bonus for winning the 2013 Platinum Glove Award as the American League's best defender. “It is disappointing, but at the end of the day, you just have to go out and play,” said Machado, who made $495,000 last season and received a $25,000 bonus for making his first All-Star team. Similarly, the Platinum Glove bonus will not be calculated as part of his 2014 base salary.

Now that former Orioles left-hander Joe Saunders has reportedly agreed to terms with the Mariners on a one-year deal, we know who is not going to be in Sarasota when spring training opens next week. Right-hander Jair Jurrjens could be on that list, too. As of Thursday evening, the Orioles were still receiving medical evaluations on Jurrjens, according to one team source. At this point and pace, we're not sure he will be in an Orioles uniform. As for Saunders, it appears that the Orioles stood their ground on their initial one-year deal.

The next Orioles deadline of note is Tuesday at noon, when the club officially exchanges figures with its arbitration eligible players. They had seven arbitration-eligible players for whom they offered contracts - and five remain unsigned. The Orioles agreed to a $1.35 million deal with reliever Darren O'Day, whom the Orioles claimed off waivers from the Texas Rangers this offseason. O'Day received a $100,000 bump. The club also settled with lefty Dana Eveland, acquired in December from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters, who agreed to terms Friday on a one-year deal in his first year of arbitration eligibility, said he is looking forward to going into the spring without his contract status looming over his head. The sides agreed to a one-year deal worth $5.5 million for 2013, avoiding the arbitration process. The deadline to file arbitration figures was Friday at 1 p.m. “It's a good feeling,” Wieters said Friday night at the premiere of 'The BUCKLe Up Birds: An Underdog Story,' a movie about the team's 2012 season.

The Orioles lone arbitration case has them more than $2 million apart. Catcher Matt Wieters, represented by agent Scott Boras, has filed for a 2014 salary worth $8.75 million, while the Orioles filed at $6.5 million. The club settled with the rest of their arbitration-eligible players on Friday. The 27-year-old Wieters made $5.5 million in 2013, when he hit .235 with a .287 on-base percentage and had 22 homers and 79 RBIs in 148 games. He was a finalist for a Gold Glove, but did not win. The Orioles can continue to negotiate with Wieters up until hearings begin at some point next month.

Chris Davis, the 2013 Most Valuable Oriole and third-place finisher in American League Most Valuable Player voting, avoided arbitration Friday and signed a one-year deal worth $10.35 million, more than tripling his $3.3 million salary from last season. Davis might have been able to push it and attempt to get the highest salary ever awarded in an arbitration hearing, but instead he will settle for being the club's third-highest-paid player behind outfielders Nick Markakis ($15 million in 2014)

Today is arbitration exchange day in Major League Baseball. By late this afternoon we will know what agent Scott Boras believes catcher Matt Wieters and first baseman Chris Davis should earn in 2014. And we'll know what the Orioles think, too. Wieters made $5.5 million last year and Davis made $3.3 million. Here's a prediction: they are both going to get handsome raises in 2014, no matter if they settle or if they end up in an arbitration hearing next month. Wieters and Davis are two of five current Orioles who are eligible for arbitration.

The Orioles signed all but one of their remaining arbitration-eligible players Friday while making slugger Chris Davis the third-highest paid member of the team by more than tripling his 2013 salary. The lone arbitration question now centers on catcher Matt Wieters, who has asked for an $8.75 million salary in 2014 while the Orioles filed at $6.5 million. The 27-year-old Wieters, who is represented by prominent agent Scott Boras, made $5.5 million in 2013 when he hit .235 with a .287 on-base percentage, 22 homers and 79 RBIs in 148 games.

Members of a local longshoremen union that went on strike in October, crippling the port of Baltimore for three days, will meet Monday to discuss a new contract offer from the port's employers. The deadline for a new deal between the International Longshoremen's Association Local 333 and the Steamship Trade Association of Baltimore, which represents the employers, is Jan. 17. That's when a "cooling-off" period ordered by an arbitrator to stop the October strike and restart port operations comes to an end. The outcome of the Local 333 meeting, where a vote on the proposed contract could take place, will have huge implications for the port - which has worked to protect its reputation as a dependable cargo handler after the last work stoppage angered customers.

Lost in Monday night's 11 th -hour drama that saw the Orioles trade closer Jim Johnson to the Oakland A's were several roster moves the club also made prior to the midnight tender deadline. The Orioles tendered contracts to their six remaining arbitration-eligible players: catcher Matt Wieters, first baseman Chris Davis and pitchers Bud Norris, Tommy Hunter, Brian Matusz and Troy Patton. That much was expected. The six will exchange salary figures with the Orioles next month.

The Orioles have agreed to a one-year, $1.025 million deal with outfielder Nolan Reimold, according to an industry source. Reimold, who batted .195 with five homers in just 40 games last year due to a spine/neck injury that required surgery in July, made $1 million in 2013. So the guaranteed agreement represents a slight raise in base pay; it would increase if he meets certain performance incentives based on plate appearances. The 30-year-old outfielder, who has been with the organization since being drafted in the second round in 2005, played in just 16 games in 2012 due to the neck condition.
