Orioles GM Duquette calls Davis 'key player for future'
The Baltimore Orioles have a few players playing in their contract years, including Matt Wieters, Chris Davis, Gerrardo Parra and Darren O'Day.
In speaking with season ticket holders Saturday, GM Dan Duquette was asked about the status of those stars.
“We’ve got a number of free agents on this team, and I can tell you this: We’re going to sign some of them, and some of them, we’re not going to be able to sign,” Duquette said via CSN Baltimore.
He went on to say that Davis is a priority.
“We do want to sign some of our key players for the future, and Chris Davis is one of them.”
After a breakout 2013 in which he hit 53 home runs, Davis struggled in 2014 and is currently enjoying a bouceback campaign in 2015.
Heading into Sunday's games, David led the league in RBIs with 88 and has hit 34 home runs, besting his 2014 total of 26.
