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 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.
