BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles agreed to one-year contracts Friday with catcher Matt Wieters, slugger Chris Davis and left-handed pitchers Brian Matusz and Troy Patton.

The moves enabled the sides to avoid arbitration.

Wieters, who received $500,000 in 2012, earned a raise to $5.5 million. He made the AL All-Star team last season and finished with a .249 batting average while setting career highs with 23 homers, 83 RBIs and 144 games played.

Davis led the Orioles with 33 home runs and 85 RBIs while playing the outfield, first base and designated hitter. His salary jumped from $488,000 to $3.3 million.

Matusz contributed in the bullpen during the 2012 playoffs. In 18 relief appearances during the regular season, the 25-year-old was 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA. He will receive $1.6 million in 2013 after making $1.45 million a year ago.

Patton was 1-0 with a 2.43 ERA in 54 games with Baltimore. His salary will jump to $815,000 from $483,500.

The Orioles also exchanged arbitration figures with All-Star closer Jim Johnson and right-handers Jason Hammel and Darren O'Day.

Johnson requested $7.1 million while Baltimore countered at $5.7 million. Hammel asked for $8.25 million and was offered $5.7 million. O'Day proposed $3.2 million and was offered $1.8 million.
