The Baltimore Orioles announced yesterday that they have signed center fielder Adam Jones to a six year deal worth $85.5 million. There is also no option for a seventh year according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.

There is no-trade provisions in this contract for Jones. Jones will start out the deal making $8.5 million next season, and in the last year of the deal he will be making $17 million.

This is the second largest deal for center fielders with Matt Kemp leading the way. The Dodgers center fielder is currently on the disabled list, but was on fire to start the season.

Jones was acquired by the Orioles from the Seattle Mariners in 2008. He was acquired along with former closer George Sherrill for left handed pitcher Erik Bedard. At the time, Bedard was one of the best pitchers in baseball while Jones was a top prospect for the Mariners.
