BALTIMORE (AP) - Pitcher Tommy Hunter and the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a $1.82 million, one-year contract, more than tripling his salary of $493,500 last year.
The 26-year-old right-hander was 7-8 with a 5.45 ERA in 20 starts and 13 relief appearances last year and was a big part of the Orioles' stretch push that earned the team's first playoff appearance since 1997. He was 3-0 with a 0.71 ERA in his last 10 games.
Seven Orioles remain eligible to file for arbitration Tuesday: catcher Matt Wieters; right-handers Tommy Hunter, Jason Hammel, Jim Johnson and Darren O'Day; left-handers Brian Matusz and Troy Patton; and infielder Chris Davis.
Hunter's agreement was announced Monday.
