Scott and Orioles agree to $6.4 million deal
The deal Thursday was above the midpoint between the $6.85 million Scott had asked for when proposed arbitration figures were exchanged last month and the $5.7 million the Orioles had offered.
Scott hit .284 with 27 homers and 72 RBIs last year, when he made $4.05 million.
Right-hander Jeremy Guthrie is the last Baltimore player remaining in arbitration.
