The Boston Red Sox are making $14.1 million qualifying offers to free agents Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew.
The team has decided not to make an offer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia, also a free agent.
The 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.
