Indians, Choo Continue Discussing Multiyear Deal

GM Chris Antonetti told Paul Hoyes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the Indians continue to discuss possible multiyear deals with Shin-Soo Choo, even after avoiding arbitration with a one-year deal. The sides agreed to a $3.975MM salary for 2011, but agent Scott Boras and Antonetti both told Hoynes they'd consider an extension.

"We're still in the midst of discussions," Antonetti said. "I don't view it as the negotiations being closed."

The Indians continued their streak of avoiding arbitration this offseason, the club's first under Antonetti. Chris Perez, Rafael Perez and Asdrubal Cabrera all agreed to one-year deals this week, as our Arb Tracker shows.
