Indians GM Chris Antonetti said Travis Hafner is a possibility for their DH vacancy.

The Indians declined Hafner's $13 million option this offseason, but haven't ruled out bringing him back on a lesser contract. "He could be [an option], potentially," Antonetti said. "I think some of that is going to depend on other opportunities, as well as what we may have for him compared to other guys." If Hafner isn't re-signed, the Indians could go with a rotation at DH in 2013. Current in-house options include Mike Aviles, Tim Fedroff, and Rule 5 pick Chris McGuiness.
