Report: Chris Davis has $150 million offer from Orioles

14 Comments

Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports that the Orioles have an offer on the table to Chris Davis believed to be in the $150 million range, “but it’s not going to stay there much longer.”

According to Kubatko the deal includes deferred money, making the present day value less than $150 million, but the Orioles don’t think another team has offered more to Davis yet.

Davis’ agent, Scott Boras, seems inclined to wait out the market, but the Orioles would prefer a quick answer either way so they can decide whether to pursue a different big-name free agent hitter like Alex Gordon or Justin Upton.
