Davis and Boras are thought to be looking for something closer to $200 million, but it sounds like they could double back to Baltimore if no other team takes the bait.

Davis, 29, batted .262/.361/.562 with 47 home runs and 117 RBI in 160 games this past season for the O’s. He also led all major league hitters with 208 strikeouts.
