The annual Silver Slugger awards are being announced tonight and while Orioles outfielder Adam Jones has a shot at winning the honor for the first time in his career, it looks like the Orioles will come away empty handed. Jones, who won his second career Gold Glove earlier this month and was named Most Valuable Oriole for the second straight season after a breakout 2012 campaign, figures to be a dark horse for the award. He ranks just 10th in the AL in home runs (32) and his .287 average, 87 RBIs and slugging percentage (.505)

SARASOTA, FLA. - It's a loaded question, but that's OK, because the Orioles just added to what was already a loaded lineup. So, is there a better offensive team in the American League than the one that led the majors in home runs last year and just added veteran slugger Nelson Cruz to that equation? "I can't think of one," Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman said, "but I think every lineup in the American League is good. On paper, we look solid right now, but it's all about executing.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, speaking to reporters Wednesday afternoon, was mum about his thoughts on what the Orioles need to do this offseason to improve, but he said he's been sharing his opinion with Orioles manager Buck Showalter since the season ended. “I've been talking to Showalter,” Jones said. “We've been talking about the needs for this team.” Jones, who won his first career Silver Slugger award on Wednesday evening, did say he realizes the bar has been raised for the Orioles, who failed to reach the playoffs this season after their breakout 93-win season in 2012.

While reports out of the final day of Major League Baseball's general managers' meetings Wednesday in Orlando, Fla., said that the Orioles could explore trades involving cornerstone players J.J. Hardy and Matt Wieters, the team is not actively shopping either player, according to a club source. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Wednesday night that he's met with more than half the major league clubs to gauge whether they could be trade partners, but he added that Hardy and Wieters are “core players on our ballclub.” He also met with several free-agent representatives in Orlando and made preliminary offers to multiple pitchers.

For the first time in franchise history, three Orioles players received the Silver Slugger award, given annually to the top offensive player at each position in each league. Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, center fielder Adam Jones and shortstop J.J. Hardy each won the award, announced Wednesday on MLB Network. The Orioles' three Silver Slugger awards this year were the most by any major league team. Former Orioles designate hitter Aubrey Huff was the last Oriole to win a Silver Slugger, in 2008.

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 annual Silver Slugger Awards will be announced at 6 p.m. tonight on MLB Network, and the Orioles should be well represented. The awards are decided by a vote of major league managers and coaches, and lean heavily toward run-production numbers. Orioles first baseman Chris Davis might be an underdog for the American League Most Valuable Player Award, but it's safe to say he's a favorite to win a Silver Slugger at first base. He led the major leagues in 2013 in home runs (53)

According to a report out of Venezuela, former longtime Oriole Melvin Mora announced his retirement from major league baseball Thursday while in his home country. Mora, who will turn 40 in February, was released by the Arizona Diamondbacks last June after hitting .228 in 127 at-bats for the Diamondbacks. He said earlier this winter that he wanted to play again if he could find the right opportunity, but apparently that did not happen. Mora was traded to the Orioles by the New York Mets in July 2000 as part of then-GM Syd Thrift's fire sale.

1982 Two dates from Ripken's rookie year defined the course of his career. On May 30, The Streak began. On July 1, he was moved from third base to shortstop. He responded by winning the American League Rookie of the Year award and helping the Orioles remain in contention for the AL East crown until the final game. His first Opening Day was memorable, with three hits, including a home run. The season included 44 consecutive errorless games at third base, his first grand slam and a five-hit game.
