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.

    Wow. Just lookit that pic. 1.3 Mil sure makes a fella happy, eh? Actually, 1.3 mil would make me grin like a fool, too, so you be happy Robert Andino: the sight of that grinnin’ mug just brightens up my day :)

    Every time the Yankee played the O’s they showed that picture. Gotta love that “hey look no cavities” gazillion watt smile.

    You’d think all ML players would feel that good about playing ball. I know I would!

    How the hell does anyone, even if it is a middle infielder get 1.3 million with an OPS of 670?
