Orioles agree to terms with Koji
The Orioles have agreed to terms with Koji Uehara, their best relief pitcher for much of last season, on a one-year deal with a vesting option for the 2012 season, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.
The exact terms aren't known, but the option won't be hard to obtain if Uehara is able to stay healthy through the majority of the season. The contract also includes some escalator clauses depending on whether Uehara is the Orioles' closer.
