Orioles Non-Tender Luke Scott

The Orioles will non-tender Luke Scott, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun. Scott was eligible for $6.4 million this season. The club still could sign Scott at a lesser deal, according to Connolly.

Scott was traded to the Orioles along with Matt Albers, Troy Patton, Dennis Sarfate and Mike Costanzo for Miguel Tejada during the 2007-2008 off-season. He hit 84 home runs with a batting line of .260/.362/.485 in 4 seasons with the Orioles. He was also the team’s MVP in 2010, when he hit 27 home runs with a batting line of .284/.368/.535 . However, he had an abysmal 2011 season where he only hit .220/.301/.402 and missed a large portion of the season due to injury.
