Arbitration Eligibles: Baltimore Orioles

The Orioles kick off our series taking a look at players who will be arbitration eligible for 2012.

Projected potential Super Twos such as Bergesen and Simon may not end up with enough service time to be arbitration eligible.  If the projected 2.145 cutoff holds up, Bergesen will be arbitration eligible and Simon will not.

Scott had shoulder surgery in July and is a likely non-tender.  Pie is possible given his terrible offensive season, as are potential first-timers Eyre, Reyes, and Bergesen.  Accardo is another non-tender candidate.

The key cases for the Orioles are Jones, Guthrie, and Johnson.  Jones should exceed $6MM.  Guthrie is in lightly charted waters as a third-time starting pitcher, and the cases of 2012 peers like John Danks, Matt Garza, and Joe Saunders will be relevant here.  $9-10MM is possible.  Johnson will be coming off a solid season, but still figures to come in under $2MM.
