The Orioles today announced that they have agreed to terms with CA Matt Wieters, INF Chris Davis, and LHPs Troy Patton and Brian Matusz on one-year contracts, thus avoiding arbitration.

            Patton, 27, was 1-0 with a 2.43 ERA (55.2IP, 15ER) in a career-high 54 games for the Orioles in 2012.


            Matusz, 25, was 6-10 with a 4.87 ERA (98.0IP, 53ER) in 34 games (16 starts) for the Orioles. In his 18 relief appearances in 2012, Matusz was 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA (13.1IP, 2ER).
