The Baltimore Orioles have declined to offer a 2013 contract to slugger Mark Reynolds, a decision that allows the infielder to become a free agent. Baltimore also declined to tender second baseman Omar Quintanilla and right-hander Stu Pomeranz. The moves were announced Friday night. Reynolds hit .221 with 23 homers and 69 RBIs last season. His home run output was down from 37 in 2011 and his fewest since his rookie year in 2007. Reynolds struggled at third base early last season and was moved to first, where he played exceptionally well. Last month, the Orioles declined Reynolds' $11 million option for 2013, opting for the $500,000 buyout. Friday's move enabled Baltimore to avoid going to arbitration with Reynolds. Chris Davis moves atop the depth chart at first base.
