Mike Cameron's Option

From ESPN's Buster Olney:

The Brewers have five days after the World Series to tell Mike Cameron whether they're picking up the option; to date, there has been no official conversation between the team and the player, and it figures there won't be until Doug Melvin's situation is resolved.

Melvin has one year left on his contract, and the Brewers plan to offer him an extension.

Cameron has a $10MM option with a $750K buyout.  At the time of the signing (January), it seemed likely to stand as a one-year deal.  Cameron began the season with a 25-game suspension for using a banned stimulant.  The Yankees might have passed due to concerns over paying both Cameron and Johan Santana, according to Ken Rosenthal.

Cameron, 36 in January, hit .243/.331/.477 in 508 plate appearances.  He also saved eight bases defensively compared to the average center fielder.  After such a fine year, he's an easy choice at one-year, $9.25MM.
