Orioles avoid arbitration hearing with Jones

The Orioles have agreed to terms with center fielder Adam Jones on a one-year contract, avoiding a potentially contentious arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday in St. Petersburg.

Jones, 26, batted .280/.319/.466 in 2011 for the Orioles, setting career-highs in games (151), doubles (26), home runs (25), RBI (83), stolen bases (12) and total bases (264) on his way to being named Most Valuable Oriole.
