Baltimore Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duqette told season ticket holders that the team wants to “sign some of our key players for the future” and said that Chris Davis is “one of them,” Rich Dubroff of CSN Baltimore reports.
The 29-year-old will become a free agent after the season. The slugger is hitting .257/.341/.541 with 34 home runs and 88 RBIs. The first baseman/outfielder does struggle with strikeouts, leading the majors in that category with 144.
Baltimore has their fair share of free agents after this season with Matt Wieters, Gerardo Parra, Darren O’Day, Steve Pearce, Wei-Yin Chen and Nolan Reimold all joining Davis.
