Agent Scott Boras held his annual winter meetings media session Wednesday and addressed three of his Orioles clients who are set to become free agents after the 2015 season.

Asked about first baseman Chris Davis and catcher Matt Wieters, Boras said he believed there was a future for both players in Baltimore.

"I do think there's a chance with all players," Boras said. "[Orioles executive vice president] Dan [Duquette] and I talk a great deal and, obviously, we have to do our arbitration for annual contracts here soon. I think both players enjoy playing in Baltimore. They've been very successful there, and we'll see what the future has to offer."

As for left-hander Wei-Yin Chen, who joined Boras last season, Boras said he hasn't heard from Duquette regarding any talk of an extension. The Orioles exercised a club-friendly $4.75 million option on Chen for 2015 earlier this offseason.

"Certainly, all of these situations are fluid,' Boras said. "I've not, other than them exercising Wei-Yin's option, I've not heard from them about on their position on his future.

"Obviously, he's one of the top young pitchers and very valuable. ... He's going to have great free-agent value come next year this time."
