Let’s start with the people that were resigned … (the 1 player)
Ubaldo Jimenez’s club option was exercised due to the amount of work they have put in him.
The Indians traded Esmil Rodgers to the Toronto Blue Jays for Mike Aviles and Yan Gomez. Mike Aviles could be a backup to Kipnis, A. Cab, or even Chistenhall. This could also open the option to trade Asdrubal if an offer would emerge that could benefit the Indians greatly. Yan has the potential of making the major league team at first base.
The Indians signed Luis Hernandez (I don’t believe has any relationship to Roberto) to a minor league contract with an invitation for spring training.
The Indians also signed Matt Carson to the same type of deal. (minor league, spring training invite)
Choo- With Choo’s agent basically saying that he would not sign with the Indians because they are not “contenders”, he currently has a 1 year deal, if the Indians dont believe that they were good enough to contend they will trade him and get the best value right now.
A Cab.- His current contract is through 2014 with an affordable contract which could draw an interest, currently the Red Sox and D-Backs have been linked
Masterson- I doubt this would happen because he had a good year a year ago but has value.
Santana- I doubt this will happen too but is a young talented kid who has power, marson could step in as the every day catcher.
