Let's take a look at the 2010 options facing the Diamondbacks.
- Brandon Webb - $8.5MM club option with a $2MM buyout. Webb has missed most of the season due to shoulder bursitis, but the option for next year is still an easy decision to exercise for one of the NL's best pitchers. Webb's future should be interesting to follow.
- Jon Garland - $10MM mutual option ($2.5MM buyout if club declines, $1MM buyout if player declines). My guess is that it will be the D'Backs declining, but there's still plenty of season left for the innings-eater to endear himself to the team. Garland is a strong trade candidate, however. If dealt, his new team cannot offer arbitration if he's a Type A free agent.
- Chad Tracy - $7MM club option with a $1MM buyout. Tracy is hitting .184/.246/.333 in 126 plate appearances, so it looks like the team will take the buyout.
- Jon Rauch - $2.9MM club option - exercised. The D'Backs had to make this decision within five days after the end of the 2008 World Series. They probably regret it.
