The Indians have declined 35-year old lefty swinging DH Travis Hafner’s option for the 2013 season valued at $13 million bucks. They have bought him out for $2.75 million bucks. Hafner played in 66 games for the Indians last year and he was 50 for 219 (.228 avg, .784 OPS) with 23 runs scored, 12 homers and 34 RBIs. Hafner played in 10 years with the Indians and he played in 1,078 games in which he was 1,039 for 3,734 (.278 avg, .890 OPS) with 582 runs scored, 200 homers, 688 RBIs and 9 stolen bases. Hafner finishes up with the Tribe #8 in team history with his 200 homers. This is not much of a loss for the Indians as Hafner just couldn’t stay healthy the last few years.
