TORONTO (AP) -- The Blue Jays have exercised 2014 options on closer Casey Janssen, first baseman Adam Lind and infielder Mark DeRosa and declined an option on infielder Munenori Kawasaki.

Janssen will get $4 million, Lind $7 million and DeRosa $750,000. Kawasaki, whose option price was $1 million, does not receive a buyout.

In other moves, right-handers Josh Johnson and Ramon Ortiz were reinstated from the 60-day disabled list as they became free agents Thursday along with outfielder Rajai Davis and left-hander Darren Oliver.

Outfielder Melky Cabrera, pitchers Brett Cecil, Brandon Morrow and Juan Perez and infielder Maicer Izturis were reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Friday.
