Orioles and RHP Brad Brach avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.25 million contract.
Brach was a very good member of the Orioles' bullpen this past season, posting a 2.72 ERA with 89 strikeouts in 79 1/3 innings. With Zach Britton and Darren O'Day in tow, Brach won't be likely to have many save opportunities but should be a valuable member of the O's pen again in 2016. Jan 14 - 6:42 PM
