Primarily, the Indians have starters Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir and relievers Joe Smith and Matt Albers all hitting the open market. Former closer Chris Perez is also a free agent, but given the fact that Cleveland released him, it can already be assumed he will not be rejoining the team.
The Indians are expected to make an attempt to sign each of the first four. Some negotiations have already occurred, but little to no progress has been made on a new deal for any of those players. A qualifying offer was made to Jimenez, but he is expected to deny it and seek a multi-year deal that will almost assuredly come.
Kazmir and Smith are both seeking longer contracts than what the Indians have so far felt comfortable offering. Cleveland wants another one-year deal with Kazmir and are willing to go to two with Smith, but both want more. Albers is perhaps the most likely to stay with Cleveland after a season in which he finished the second-most games on the team and posted a 3.14 ERA.
