The Orioles have decided to non-tender Jo-Jo Reyes, allowing him to become a free agent. Reyes was snagged off the waiver wire from the Toronto Blue Jays at midseason and posted a 6.16 ERA for the Orioles in nine games (five starts).

With the acquisition of Dana Eveland last week, and the Orioles’ interest in other starting pitchers in the market, Reyes, 27, became expendable.

The Orioles also have non-tendered Luke Scott, though they hope to bring him back at a salary lesser than the $6.4 million he made in 2011.

As of 11 p.m. there was no word on whether right-hander Brad Bergesen would be tendered a contract.
