Indians decline option on Kubel making him a free agent

Indians decline option on Kubel making him a free agent

The Indians announced today that they have declined the $7.5 million club option for outfielder Jason Kubel. He is now a free agent.

Kubel, 31, was acquired from the Diamondbacks at the end of August for Matt Langwell and he played sparingly for the Indians. He appeared in just eight games and went 3-for-18 at the plate with one extra base hit and no RBI and a .570 OPS. He finished the year hitting a combined .216 with 5 HR, 32 RBI and .610 OPS in 97 games between Arizona and Cleveland.

Kubel was bothered by a few injuries this season and he may look to sign a one year deal with a team for next season to rebuild his value; however, given his struggles with injury and performance over the past season he is probably looking at a minor league deal with someone. It is possible the Indians could bring him back on such a deal.
