JimenezThe Indians made a pitch to Ubaldo Jimenez and protected themselves in case the right-hander leaves town.

The club gave Jimenez a $14.1 million qualifying offer on Monday, which he can consider as he starts to talk with other teams.

The Indians would love to have the 31-year-old back after he finally emerged as the front-of-the-rotation starter Cleveland thought it was getting when Jimenez was acquired before the trading deadline in 2011.

Jimenez was at his best in September, going 4-0 with a 1.09 ERA as the Indians finished the month with a 10-game winning streak and earned a wild-card spot to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007.
