The Baltimore Orioles signed second baseman Brian Roberts on a one-year, $3.075 million contract, avoiding arbitration. Roberts asked for $3.6 million and the Orioles offered $2.4 million. Robert's opening day status is uncertain, because of a lingering elbow injury.
Roberts brokeout last year batting .314, hitting 18 homers, and knocking-in 73 runs in 143 games
