    Veteran Mark DeRosa is also in good position with his option and Casey Janssen is a lock to have his club option triggered. It now looks like Lind will get $7MM to stay in Toronto next season rather than getting a $2MM buyout to ply his craft elsewhere. The Jays also have options on Lind's services for 2015 ($7.5MM) and 2016 ($8MM). In 2013, Lind has hit .287/.356/.497, his best slash line since 2009.
    DeRosa's $750K option was expected to be triggered, but he could opt to retire rather than return. The 38-year-old, who has a .229/.322/.398 slash line on the year, has earned nearly $30MM over the course of his career. Meanwhile, Janssen's $4MM option is a slam dunk after turning in a 2.56 ERA with 8.5 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9 in 56 relief appearances.
    Anthopoulos also expressed confidence that the Blue Jays' rotation can turn things around with "a starter or two" added this offseason, Davidi tweets.

    I hope he doesn't retire. We need one more season of Mark DeRosa free agency speculation.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Yes, and Edwin Encarnacion wasn't the least bit happy about it.
