BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Orioles have declined to offer a 2013 contract to slugger Mark Reynolds, a decision that allows the infielder to become a free agent.
The Orioles have decided not to offer Mark Reynolds a contract for the 2013 season. Reynolds will now be a free agent.
Friday is the last date the Orioles have to make a contract offer to players eligible for arbitration. Fourteen are eligible, and most of them will be offered contracts.
Free agency begins the day after the World Series. There are some players who were key to the Orioles’ success who’ll be free agents. ‘
