Manny Machado, Orioles Avoid Arbitration With $16 Million Deal

Even with trade rumors continuing to swirl around Manny Machado, the Baltimore Orioles were able to avoid arbitration with their All-Star third baseman on Friday.

Britton, who who is recovering from surgery to fix a torn right Achilles tendon, reached agreement for a $12 million salary this season.

Per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand, Machado and the Orioles agreed to terms on a $16 million deal for 2018 that also includes awards incentives.

Schoop agreed a year ago to a $3.475 million contract, but after a Most Valuable Oriole season in 2017 the second baseman will more than double his salary.

Machado, who can become a free agent after this season, hit.259 with 33 homers and 95 RBIs previous year, when he made $11.5 million.

However, Donaldson already made $17 million last year, the final year of a two-year contract negotiated by the Blue Jays after his MVP season in 2015. In 2016, he had a 0.54 ERA and converted all 47 of his save opportunities.

Catcher Caleb Joseph received a raise from $700,000 to $1.25 million and shortstop Tim Beckham received a hefty salary from $885,000 past year (with the Tampa Bay Rays) to $3.35 million for 2018.

Machado has one year left on his contract before becoming a free agent. Machado wound up hitting.259/.310/.471 last season, bashing 33 homers and as many doubles.

The Orioles went to the increasingly common "file and trial" position in negotiation with arbitration-eligible players starting last season, meaning that once players exchange salary figures, they are slated to go to a hearing with no further negotiation. Joseph, 31, hit.256 with eight home runs and 28 RBIs in 2017.

Right-hander Kevin Gausman and second baseman Jonathan Schoop have yet to reach agreement on salaries for 2018.
