Orioles have declined Nick Markakis' $17.5 million option for 2015.

The $17.5 million price tag is too steep for a player of his caliber. Markakis hit 14 home runs, knocked in 50 runs, and hit .276 in 2014. Markakis is a fan and organization favorite, and a return to Baltimore at a lower price is a very real possibility.

Indians have exercised the $3.5M club option for Mike Aviles.

Rangers officially decline 2015 club option on Alex Rios to make him a free agent.

Thumb and ankle injuries took away from Rios' 2014 season. Those injuries bothered him enough to the extent that he hit only four home runs and stole 17 bases in 131 games. He is expected to be healthy for spring training, and some club will sign the 34-year old outfielder this offseason.

Rockies exercise team option on relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins for 2015.

In 2014, Hawkins compiled a 4-3 record, with 23 saves and 3.31 ERA. The 41-year old could retain his closing duties if Colorado feels comfortable with him again.

Dodgers declined Chad Billingsley's option.

His option was $14 million and that is rather high for a player coming off of surgery for a torn flexor tendon. Instead of picking up his option, the Dodgers chose the $3 million buyout.
