Indians exercised RHP Ubaldo Jimenez's $5.75 million option for 2013.

An expected move. Jimenez had a miserable 5.40 ERA this season and led the AL with 17 losses, but the chance of a rebound is worth keeping him around at this price. His contract includes an $8 million option for 2014, but Jimenez can void it because he was traded. If he has a bounce-back season, it's a good bet he'll opt out.
