Well, Luke Scott - who the Orioles non-tendered this offseason - has signed with the Tampa Bay Rayssigned with the Tampa Bay Rays. It looks like the Orioles wanted to move on from him, and sure enough they have...

From the Baltimore Sun:

Luke Scott, the outspoken, energetic sluggerLuke Scott, the outspoken, energetic slugger who spent four seasons in Baltimore and was named the 2010 Most Valuable Oriole, has agreed to a one-year deal with the division-rival Tampa Bay Rays that includes a 2013 option, according to an industry source.

Exact terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Scott, 33, was in his final year of arbitration after making $6.4 million in an injury-marred 2011 that ended in July, when he decided to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. In December, the Orioles decided not to tender him a contract -- he would have made at least $6 million and likely more -- and allowed him to become a free agent.

Honestly, considering the way that Baltimore's offseason has gone, I would have figured they might have given Scott an incentive-based contract. We all know he's streaky and isn't the best fielder out there; however, when he hits, he can help lift a team for periods at a time. At this point, he's a designated hitter and he may not be a good fit with Baltimore now.
