Alex Gordon, OF

The longest-tenured Royal's days in Kansas City are likely over after he declined his $12.5 million player option for 2016. Gordon is a four-time Gold Glove winner who is in the mold of Nick Markakis, lauded for his steadiness on the field and his low-key leadership off it. He missed time with a groin injury this past season, but the 31-year-old Gordon would give the Orioles much-needed stability in left field. However, he received a qualifying offer, meaning he will cost a first-round pick. Set to turn 32 in February, he could draw a four-year deal.
