Cross another name off the list of potential arbitration hearings, as Robert Andino and the Orioles have compromised on a one-year deal.

Andino submitted a $1.6 million figure and the Orioles countered at $1 million, and according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun they settled at the $1.3 million midpoint.

Andino came into last season as a 27-year-old with just 440 career plate appearances, but was pressed into extended duty subbing for the injured Brian Roberts and came to the plate 511 times. He didn’t hit much, although his .263 batting average and .670 OPS were both significantly above his career norms.
