Stephen Drew: A's Decline 2013 Option

Update: The Athletics declined Drew's $10 million option for 2013, the team's official Twitter reports.

Recommendation: Despite a dearth of middle infield talent on the big league roster, the Athletics clearly felt $10 million was too excessive for a middling talent like Drew, who provided meager returns while splitting time between the Diamondbacks and Athletics last season. There remains a chance the team could bring him back after he picked up his production after being traded to the A's in August, but it will have to be at a more cap-friendly salary.
