Associated Press All-Star closer Jim Johnson will make $6.5 million and pitcher Jason Hammel will earn $6.75 million under their one-year contracts with the Baltimore Orioles. In addition, the Orioles were working toward a $5.8 million, two-year contract with Darren O’Day. The agreement, subject to a physical, would pay him $2.2 million this year and $3.2 million in 2014. The Orioles would have a $4.25 million option for 2015 with a $400,000 buyout. Johnson can earn an additional $50,000 in performance bonuses under Friday’s agreement: $50,000 each for 50 and 55 games finished. Hammel can make an extra $300,000 in performance bonuses: $100,000 for 25 games started, and $100,000 each for 175 and 190 innings pitched.
