Orioles | Options held on two players

The Baltimore Orioles have options on two players for 2013, A $1 million option ($100,000 buyout) on RP Luis Ayala and an $11 million option for 3B Mark Reynolds ($500,000 buyout). Ayala's option is team friendly, so it's likely it will be picked up. Reynolds' option is likely to be declined, but he still has one year remaining in arbitration, so if the Orioles buy out the option, he could still remain with the club. But they likely would have to pay him around $9 million or so in arbitration (he made $7.5 million in 2012 and a pay cut would be highly unlikely). So the Orioles could non-tender him a contract by Nov. 30 and try to renegotiate a new deal with him.
