SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Manny Machado's contract has been renewed by the Baltimore Orioles at a slight raise, a deal that disappointed the All-Star third baseman.
The 21-year-old will receive $519,000 - $19,000 above the major league minimum - and would earn an additional $100,000 for winning the 2013 Platinum Glove Award as the AL's best defensive player.
Machado had a $495,000 base salary last season and earned $25,000 for making the AL All-Star team.
Teams had until Tuesday to reach agreements with unsigned players on their 40-man rosters, and players not eligible for arbitration were subject to unilateral renewal by their clubs.
Machado says ''it's the system, and the system is never going to change.''
He has yet to play this spring training following offseason knee surgery.
