Baltimore extends Matusz

by Matthew on January 14, 2013

The O’s stayed busy on Monday, signing another one of their arbitration eligible players, as they inked left-handed pitcher Brain Matusz to a projected $1 million salary.

This according to multiple sources, including Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.

Orioles also are close to agreeing to a deal with Brian Matusz, according to an industry source. That one isnt done yet.

That number is a $350K pay cut from $1.35 million he made in 2012.

Not surprising as the Super 2 player was a bit of a disappointment last season after going 6-10 with a 4.87 ERA in 34 games —16 starts.

However, the 25-year old was eventually switched to the bullpen and excelled, posting a 1-0 record with a 1.35 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 18 regular-season games.

Matusz was one of Baltimore’s seven remaining arb-eligible players, and after the team’s earlier signing of Tommy Hunter, have five more to go.

Spread the Rumor!
