Orioles agree to terms with RHP Tommy Hunter

The Orioles today announced that they have agreed to terms with RHP TOMMY HUNTER on one-year contracts, thus avoiding arbitration.

Hunter, 26, was 7-8 with a 5.45 ERA (133.2IP, 81ER) in 33 games (20 starts) for the Orioles in 2012. In his last 10 appearances of the year (all in relief), Hunter was 3-0 with a 0.71 ERA (12.2IP, 1ER).

The Orioles now have seven arbitration eligible players: CA MATT WIETERS, INF CHRIS DAVIS, LHPs TROY PATTON and BRIAN MATUSZ and RHPs JASON HAMMEL, JIM JOHNSON and DARREN O'DAY.
