Orioles, Manny Machado Agree To $16M Deal For 2018



The hot corner figures to be sizzling Friday when players and teams swap proposed salaries in arbitration. But most are likely to reach agreement Friday, the busiest day of the offseason.

Britton was the first to sign, agreeing to a one-year $12 million deal, up from $11.4 million in an injury shortened 2017.

The Orioles agreed to terms with injured closer Zach Britton that will avoid arbitration and pay him $12 million for his final season before free agency, according to an industry source. A three-time All-Star, the 25-year-old Machado hit.

Technically, the Orioles could have offered up to a 20 percent cut in Britton's salary, but the 30-year-old pitcher and his agent, Scott Boras, certainly would have had a strong case before an arbitration panel that Britton didn't deserve a paycut after an effective - albeit truncated - 2017. Right-hander Kevin Gausman and second baseman Jonathan Schoop are Baltimore's only arbitration-eligible players without deals.

The Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies have also shown interest in Machado.

One of baseball's superstar third basemen, Machado has made three American League All-Star teams and earned two Gold Gloves in six seasons. Several clubs refused to negotiate after the exchange of proposed arbitration salaries, a so-called "file and trial" strategy.
