Orioles avoided arbitration with 1B/OF Chris Davis by agreeing to a one-year, $3.3 million contract.

He can earn an additional $50,000 each if he makes the All-Star team or wins a Silver Slugger award. Davis, who slugged 33 homers in 2012, will serve as the Orioles' everyday first baseman in 2013. He was arbitration-eligible for the first time.
