Rich Pilling/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- The Baltimore Orioles have signed free agent infielder Everth Cabrera to a one-year $2.4 million contract.

Orioles Re-Sign Reliever Tommy Hunter to a One-Year Deal

Orioles Re-Sign Reliever Tommy Hunter to a One-Year Deal

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- Despite a rocky 2014 season, the Baltimore Orioles have brought back reliever Tommy Hunter on a one-year deal worth $4.65 million.

By agreeing to the deal, Hunter avoids arbitration with the club.

Hunter started out last season as the Orioles' closer, but after blowing six saves, the team turned to Zach Britton and he flourished in the role.

The 28-year-old Hunter still had a productive season despite his struggles closing out games. In 60 appearances, Hunter went 3-2 with a 2.97 ERA.

In Hunter's first two season with the Orioles, he posted ERAs over 5.00, but over the past two seasons he's posted ERAs under 3.00.

In seven seasons in Major League Baseball, Hunter is 42-31 with a 4.32 ERA to go along with 15 saves and 34 holds.

Hunter was acquired by the team back in 2011 along with first baseman Chris Davis from the Texas Rangers.

Starting Pitcher Johan Santana Attempting Another Comeback

Starting Pitcher Johan Santana Attempting Another Comeback

Elliot J. Schecther/MLB Photos(NEW YORK) -- Former All-Star starting pitcher Johan Santana isn't ready to call it a career just yet as he will make yet another attempt to reach the Majors again.

While attempting a comeback last season with Baltimore Orioles, Santana tore his left Achilles tendon in June. He will participate in the Venezuelan Winter League.

"Johan wants to go out on his own terms," said Peter Greenberg, Santana's agent. "He doesn't want to go out because an injury put him out. He's worked very hard and kept himself in shape, and he's never thought about retiring.

"It's not about the money or anything like that. He's said he wants to draw his own ending. He wants to go out on his own terms. He's told me, 'I want to add to my legacy.' I think anybody who knows him is going to bet on him."

Santana was one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball 2003-2010 during his time with the Minnesota Twins and New York Mets.

During his 12-year career, the 35-year-old Santana went 139-78 with a 3.20 ERA. He also won two American League Cy Young Awards in 2004 and 2006.

Yankes Sign Reliever Andrew Miller, Acquire Shorstop Didi Gregorius via Trade

Yankes Sign Reliever Andrew Miller, Acquire Shorstop Didi Gregorius via Trade

Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- The New York Yankees have taken a major step, or make that steps, in making them a playoff contender again. On Friday, the team signed ace reliever Andrew Miller while also acquiring shortstop Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-team trade.

Miller's deal with the Yankees for four years and will pay him $36 million.

Over the past two seasons, Miller has emerged as one of more dominant relievers in the American League with the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles.

In 2014, Miller posted a 5-5 record with a 2.02 ERA to go along with 103 strikeouts in 62.1 innings pitched. His strikeout-per-nine-innings ratio of 14.87 was second to only Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman.

Meanwhile, Gregorius could very well be the replacement to longtime shortstop Derek Jeter. While he's not known for his bat, he's known as being a great defender at his position.

In order to get Gregorius, the Yankees sent pitcher Shane Greene to the Detroit Tigers while the Diamondbacks acquired pitcher Robbie Ray and infielder Domingo Leyba.

In 2014, the Yankees missed out on the playoffs for the second-consecutive season after finishing 84-78.

Options Declined on Butler, Markakis, Weeks

Options Declined on Butler, Markakis, Weeks

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Three prominent names in baseball will be looking for work this offseason as Billy Butler, Nick Markakis and Rickie Weeks had

contract options declined by their teams.

Coming off a heartbreaking game 7 World Series loss, the Kansas City Royals turned down a $12 million option on Butler, their designated hitter and a fan favorite. Butler was a 2012 All-Star when he hit .313 with 29 home runs and 107 RBI. Those numbers have took a sharp dive this season as he hit .271 with nine home runs and 66 RBI. 

The Baltimore Orioles chose to buyout the remaining year on outfielder Nick Markakis's contract, choosing to pay him $2 million instead of the full $17.5 million he would have made this coming season. 

Markakis had stated that would like to stay in Baltimore and the Orioles would like him to return according to MASN's Roch Kubatko.

"Nick is a dependable player and the Orioles would like to continue a relationship with him," said executive vice president Dan Duquette in a text message.

The Milwaukee Brewers also chose to save some money by declining the option of second baseman Rickie Weeks that would have seen him earn $14.5 million.

Weeks has spent his entire 11-year career with the Brewers but was becoming a part-time player as he has missed at least 40 games in three of the last four seasons for the Brew Crew.

Orioles Sweep Tigers, Advance to ALCS

Orioles Sweep Tigers, Advance to ALCS

Baltimore Orioles/MLB(DETROIT) -- The Baltimore Orioles are flying to the American League Championship Series.

Baltimore struck first on Sunday when Nelson Cruz's two-run homer in the top of the sixth inning off of David Price gave Baltimore a 2-0 lead. 

The Tigers would fight in the bottom of the ninth when J.D. Martinez hit a RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning off Zach Britton, but Britton then got pinch hitter Hernan Perez to ground into a double play to end the game.

Baltimore completed a 3-0 Division Series sweep and they'll wait on the winner of Kansas City and the Angels series.

Cruz's homer in the sixth was his 16th postseason dinger, which passed Babe Ruth on the all-time list.

Bud Norris pitched 6.1 and allowed two hits and struck out six for the victory.

Tigers starter David Price, who came over in a trade during the summer, threw 112 pitches in eight innings of work with six strike outs and gave up the two-run homer to Cruz in the sixth.  

This is Baltimore's first trip to the ALCS since 1997.
