THURSDAY: According to MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince, the Indians exercised Carroll’s $2.5MM option for ’09.
MONDAY: ESPN’s Buster Olney says it’s looking more and more likely the Indians pick up Carroll’s option.
SUNDAY: According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Indians will re-sign infielder Jamey Carroll this week. They have a $2.5MM club option on him, but it seems that they may be hammering out a deal for less.
Carroll, 35 in February, hit .277/.355/.346 in 402 plate appearances. He spent time at second and third base this year.
