Indians exercise club options on Brantley & Tomlin

Brantley (ankle) will remain with the Indians next year after the team chose to pick up his $12 million option for 2018, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. The option increased from $11 million to $12 million based on Brantley's third-place finish in the MVP voting in 2014. If the option had been declined, he would have been owed a $1 million buyout. Brantley's career has been significantly slowed by shoulder and ankle injuries since.

Brantley appeared in 90 games last season due to a right ankle injury that cost him most of the second half, but hit.299 with nine homers, 20 doubles and 52 RBIs. He went on the disabled list twice and had right ankle surgery on October 18. He is now recovering from ankle surgery, which is expected to prevent him from participating in baseball activities for the next four-to-five months. Over his last 10 starts after July 6, Josh went 6-0 with a 3.11 ERA (19ER/55.0IP) and his 0.89 walks per 9.0 innings was the lowest ratio in Major League Baseball.

Tomlin will make $3 million in 2018 before becoming a restricted free agent next offseason. This season he made $2.5 million along with $500,000 in incentives based on making 26 starts.

The deadline for exercising the options was midnight Sunday.
