ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Orioles owner Peter Angelos is "personally involved in the team's effort to re-sign" free agent first baseman Chris Davis.
That's nice, but it's all going to come down to the size of the contract. And the 29-year-old Davis has many deep-pocketed teams in pursuit of him as the premier power bat in this free agent market. Davis posted a .923 OPS with 47 home runs and 117 RBI in 160 games this past season for Baltimore. He also led all major league hitters with a whopping 208 strikeouts. Nov 23 - 8:43 AM

Fox Sports' Jon Paul Morosi reports the Cardinals are showing interest in Chris Davis.

The Cardinals have already been in touch with his agent, Scott Boras. St. Louis seems to be intrigued by Davis' versatility. The 29-year-old slugger has started at four different positions including first base, third base and both corner outfield spots. The Cardinals might view Davis as the long-term replacement for left-fielder Matt Holliday, who only has one guaranteed season left on his contract. This year's major league home run champ should net nine figures.

Rival executives see the Astros as a "natural fit" for Chris Davis, per ESPN's Buster Olney.

Houston is in the market for a first baseman and Davis is easily the best option on the open market for that position. The 29-year-old slugger posted a .923 OPS with 47 home runs and 117 RBI in 160 games this past season for the Orioles and would be capable of injecting a big burst of offense into any lineup he joins. Astros management, as Olney notes, won't be scared off by Davis' sky-high strikeout totals.

Orioles GM Dan Duquette told Jim Bowden of ESPN that the team has the resources to pursue free agent Chris Davis as well as a top-line starter.

As was to be expected, Davis turned down the Orioles' $15.8 million qualifying offer on Friday. While Duquette and the Orioles would love to have him back in the fold, the 29-year-old slugger is arguably the best bat on the free agent market and should see a ton of interest from various teams. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has reported that the Angels are among the interested parties. Davis slashed .262/.361/.562 with 47 homers and 117 RBI in 2015. In addition to their desire to re-sign Davis, Duquette indicated that the O's would also be in the market for a front-of-the-rotation arm. David Price and Zack Greinke are the two best free agent pitchers on the market, though as with Davis, both aces figure to draw intense interest from around the league.

1B/OF Chris Davis declined the Orioles' one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer.

It was a no-brainer for Davis, who is set to pull in a massive contract as a free agent. The slugger batted .262/.361/.562 with 47 home runs and 117 RBI this past season. Baltimore would like to bring him back, but it's going to be difficult.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports says the Angels have been linked to free agent Chris Davis.

The Halos just got done consummating a deal for star shortstop Andrelton Simmons, but they still have holes to fill, including at first base. Davis would be a great but expensive option, but Angels owner Arte Moreno doesn't shy away from big contracts. The Orioles are also believed to have interest in retaining the 29-year-old.
Nov 12 - 9:15 PM

Orioles extended a $15.8 million qualifying offer to 1B/OF Chris Davis.

He'll turn down the offer, although the O's seem serious about wanting to re-sign the slugger. However, there's going to be a huge market for "Crush" after he slugged 159 homers over the last four seasons.
Nov 6 - 3:51 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles are "making an early effort" to re-sign impending free agent Chris Davis.

Heyman adds that owner Peter Angelos "has taken an interest" in getting Davis locked up. While there's no doubt Baltimore wants to keep the slugger, Davis is going to test out the free agent waters. The Orioles will make him a qualifying offer and pick up a draft pick should Davis sign elsewhere.
Nov 1 - 1:51 PM

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette reiterated Sunday that re-signing impending free agent slugger Chris Davis is his top offseason priority.

"He’s had a great year and he’s been a great player for us, so obviously, we’d like to have him back," Duquette said. "Whether we can do that in the market, that remains to be seen, but we’re going to try." Davis has more home runs over the last three seasons than any other major leaguer, and power is at a premium these days. The 29-year-old is about to cash in big.

Chris Davis swatted his 43rd home run but the Orioles' bullpen coughed up the game in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Rays.

They wouldn't score again in the game, but the Oriole pen made sure that 2-1 lead stood for the final.
