Orioles reach 2-year deal with injured lefty John Means

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a $,5,925,000, two-year contract with left-handed pitcher John Means, avoiding arbitration.

Means is out for the season following Tommy John surgery. His salary was $593,500 last year. He originally asked for $3.1 million and the team offered $2.7 million for this season.

His deal calls for $2.95 million this year and $2,975,000 in 2023.

Means went 6-9 with a 3.62 ERA last season, including a no-hitter at Seattle in May. He made two starts this year, including one on opening day.

Means had been scheduled for a hearing next Thursday.
