Off-Season Begins: Yankees Exercise Cano, Granderson, & Aardsma; 12 Others Declare

Less than 24 hours since the final out of the World Series was made and the San Francisco Giants were crowned champions, the New York Yankees have started their offseason by exercising options on the contracts of Curtis Granderson, Robinson Cano, and David Aardsma for the 2013 season.

The team offices in the Bronx were closed due to Hurricane Sandy, but Brian Cashman made the announcement this afternoon. He noted that the team was waiting on a decision by Rafael Soriano since he has a player option on his contract.

Among the players that decided to declare for free-agency today were the following Yankees: Eric Chavez, Pedro Feliciano, Freddy Garcia, Raul Ibanez, Andruw Jones, Hiroki Kuroda, Derek Lowe, Russell Martin, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, Ichiro Suzuki, and Nick Swisher.
