Adam Jones Agrees To 6-Year Deal With Orioles, According To Report

Adam Jones and the Baltimore Orioles have come to terms on six-year contract extension, a source told FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal. The Orioles are expected to hold a press conference Sunday announcing the deal.

The deal has been in the works for a while now. The Orioles are in the midst of a resurgent season, and Jones is a major reason why. Baltimore is still hanging on to first place in the AL East while the the center fielder is hitting .310/.353/.594 with 14 home runs this season.

Terms of the deal haven't yet been disclosed, though Rosenthal reported Friday that deal could be in the $85 million range. Jones was set to hit free agency after the 2013 season. Assuming the new deal absorbs the one year left on his current contract, the 26-year-old should remain in Baltimore through the 2018 season.

Adam Jones Deal Reportedly Close To 6 Years, $85 Million

Adam Jones is having a breakout year for the Baltimore Orioles, who are in turn having a breakout year themselves. There are a lot of things going right for the Orioles, but Jones might be the most high-profile improvement. And like they did with Nick Markakis and Brian Roberts before, they decided that Jones is a (somewhat) homegrown star whom they didn't want to be without.

From the Rosenthal/Morosi duo:

That's a pretty balanced figure on the risk/reward spectrum. If Jones is no more than the above-average center fielder he's been for the past four years, it's still a fair deal. If his breakout is for real, though, he'll probably be underpaid.

The 26-year-old Jones had one more year of arbitration eligibility left, and was scheduled to be a free agent after the 2013 season.
