Orioles, Robert Andino Avoid Arbitration

The Orioles announced that they have avoided arbitration with infielder Robert Andino. As MLBTR's Arbitration Tracker shows, the Orioles submitted a $1MM offer, while Andino and his representatives at Legacy Sports Group asked for $1.6MM. The sides settled at the midpoint for a $1.3MM salary, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun tweets.

Andino, 27, posted a .263/.327/.344 line in 511 plate appearances while playing second, third, shortstop and left field in 2011. He's arbitration eligible for the first time this offseason and will remain under team control through 2014. The Orioles have unresolved arbitration cases with Brad Bergesen, Jeremy Guthrie and Adam Jones.

I am surprised the Sox didnt pick him up, considering he completely owned them.

I was just going to post something about that (His good numbers against Boston, not him possibly changing teams). I bet Sox fans hate him after he how he shredded them in that last series of the year.

Andino will be the O’s starting 2nd baseman and he will make everyone forget Brian “The Quiter” Roberts.
