Orioles finalize four-year contract with Hernandez


Recommended Posts

BALTIMORE ? (AP) ? Free agent catcher Ramon Hernandez and the Baltimore Orioles finalized their $27.5 million, four-year contract on Tuesday.


The 29-year-old Hernandez, who reached a preliminary agreement last week, hit .290 last season with 12 homers and 58 RBIs for the San Diego Padres.


The addition of Hernandez will mean less time behind the plate for Orioles catcher Javy Lopez, who complained of sore knees toward the end of last season.


Hernandez gets $4.5 million next year, $6.5 million in 2007, $7.5 million in 2008 and $8 million in 2009. Baltimore has an $8.5 million option for 2010 with a $1 million buyout.
