Cardinals Decline Option On Pitcher Jake Westbrook

Jake_Westbrook_Cardinals_2013 [1]Jake Westbrook completely fell out of the Cardinals’ plans by getting hurt and pitching terribly, and not surprisingly the team declined his $9.5 million option.

He’ll get a $1 million buyout instead, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Westbrook made $9.75 million this season while throwing 117 innings with a 4.63 ERA and was yanked from the rotation in August.

He spent a total of three-and-a-half seasons in St. Louis after coming over in a mid-2010 deal from Cleveland, logging 1,191 innings with a 4.29 ERA.
