Where will Justin Upton end up signing?

A look at five possible free-agent destinations for Justin Upton, yet don't be surprised if Upton provides his own surprise with his decision.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Orioles have reacquired L.J. Hoes, getting the 25-year old outfielder from Houston for cash considerations. The O's drafted the right-handed hitting Hoes in the 3rd round in 2008, then sent him to the Astros in the 2013 deal that brought Bud Norris to Baltimore. In 777 minor league games, Hoes has a .752 OPS., compared to just .617 in 112 big league games.

Things don't look good for the O's

Baltimore may still contend next year, but the team is trending downward with so many of its best players currently free agents, Jim Bowden writes. MLB status check (Insider)

Zach Britton deserves more credit

Could Orioles trade for Yasiel Puig?

Have you seen their outfielders? Injuries and attitude aside, there's no doubt Baltimore could use Puig's bat. Any potential deal could involve Kevin Gausman, but more likely Zach Britton. Other possible destinations

Should the O's extend Machado soon?

Seeing San Francisco reach a long-term deal with Brandon Crawford may have Baltimore thinking of doing the same with Manny Machado this offseason. However, the Orioles have bigger holes to fill. MLB rumors roundup

Kobe may not get one, but Ripken Jr. did

Cowboy boots, a year's supply of Florida stone crabs, an inner-city baseball field in his name and a parade at Disneyland -- these are just some of the gifts that Cal Ripken Jr. received when he announced his days on the diamond were no more. Greatest "farewell tours"

Darren O'Day looking for big money?

The 33-year-old reliever is reportedly hoping to land a four-year deal on the open market this offseason. His preferred price range isn't coming cheap, either. MLB rumors roundup

Plenty of holes on the Orioles

With so many key players becoming free agents this offseason, Baltimore is looking for just about everything, Buster Olney writes. Will the O's wait for the market to form or pounce early? Biggest holes on contenders (Insider)

O's may need to increase payroll

What is Wei-Yin Chen's projected worth?

He's been a consistent control pitcher in a division that can hit. While he isn't a star player, how much can Chen's work in the past four years with the Orioles earn him in free agency? How much are top free agents worth? (Insider)

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Catcher Matt Wieters has accepted the Baltimore Orioles' qualifying offer. That means $15.8 million less in the Birds' bank account. And $15.8 million less that the team has to spend on signing Chris Davis and/or Darren O'Day.

Jerry Crasnick MLB Sr. Writer 

Matt Wieters' decision to accept a $15.8 million qualifying offer from Baltimore came as a surprise to many, given agent Scott Boras' well-publicized distaste for the QO concept. "It's the shortest and quickest negotiation I've ever had with Matt's agent," Orioles GM Dan Duquette said on a conference call. The Orioles are still trying to sign another Boras client, Chris Davis, to a longterm deal this offseason.

Big Apple not only possibility for CÚspedes

Sure, the Yankees and Mets are expected to pursue Yoenis CÚspedes, but they're not the only ones that could use a power-hitting OF. Longtime GM and ESPN Insider Jim Bowden expects his payday to exceed $100M. Top 50 FA projections (Insider)

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Scott Boras sees Chris Davis as the top free agent on the market no matter the position. The thing that makes C.D. so interesting, he can play multiple positions, Boras said Wednesday. He can play left. He can play right. He can play first base. You usually dont find sluggers that are so versatile and so athletic. He really in my mind is the top outfield candidate in this free-agent market as well as the top infield candidate in this market.

Where will Davis mash in 2016 and beyond?

There aren't many teams in need of a first baseman, but longtime GM and ESPN Insider Jim Bowden still expects free agent Chris Davis to land a deal worth around $120M. Best fits: Orioles, Cardinals and Rockies. Top 50 FA projections (Insider)
