Baseball’s annual deadline to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players has been a painful period for the Orioles of late, with the occasion marking the departures of productive players like Jonathan Villar, Dylan Bundy, Hanser Alberto and José Iglesias in recent years.

This year’s deadline brought no such tumult as the team agreed to 2022 contracts with three of their arbitration-eligible players — outfielder Anthony Santander ($3.15 million), right-hander Jorge López ($1.5 million) and left-hander Paul Fry ($850,000) — while tendering contracts to proceed through the arbitration process with first baseman Trey Mancini and left-handers John Means and Tanner Scott.

For Santander, a second-time eligible player, and first-timers López and Fry, the deals allow them to avoid the arbitration process entirely and lock in their 2022 salaries.
