Player Notes
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Giants are "one team to watch" with impending free agent Nick Markakis.

Advice: Cafardo also list the Mets as a possible contender for Markakis' services, though it sounds like he's just speculating on potential landing spots more than anything else. The Orioles will decline their part of Markakis' $17.5 million mutual option for 2015, but the common feeling is that they'll wind up working out a deal to retain the outfielder.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles plan to decline their part of Nick Markakis' $17.5 million mutual option for 2015.

Advice: He'll receive a $2 million buyout and become a free agent. The decision isn't a big surprise, as his production simply doesn't warrant the bloated salary. Still, the Orioles are interested in bringing him back for less. Markakis has spent his entire nine-year career with the Orioles and batted .276/.342/.386 with 14 home runs and 50 RBI over 155 games this past season.
