Carroll coming back
From the no-brainer department, the Indians have exercised their $2.5 million option on Jamey Carroll for next season.
The 34-year-old Carroll hit .277 with one homer, 13 doubles, four triples, 36 RBIs and 60 runs scored in 113 games, including 84 starts at second base and third. He will once again be in the utility infield role.
Also expecting the ’09 Spring Training schedule to be released today, so, if you’re planning a trip to Goodyear or just have a profound interest in such things, be on the lookout for that on the Indians.com site later.
