The deal between the two sides could wind up in the range of $45 million, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney.

The Baltimore Orioles declined their half of the $17.5 million mutual option for the 2015 season on Markakis' contract, instead paying him a $2 million buyout to make him a free agent.

Markakis, 31, hit .276 with 14 home runs and 50 RBIs in 155 games last season, his ninth with Baltimore.

A two-time Gold Glove Award winner, Markakis has at least 10 home runs and 24 doubles in each season of his career.
