Baseball’s general managers will meet in Orlando, Fla., this week, and Cleveland Indians’ starter Ubaldo Jimenez is expected to reject the Tribe’s contract offer, according to the Plain Dealer.

In addition, Scott Kazmir is also expected to be moving on from the Tribe. PD writer Paul Hoynes said he is looking for a multi-year contract, while the Indians would rather sign him to a one-year deal.

Jimenez posted a 13-9 record with a team-best 3.30 ERA. Kazmir was 10-9 with an ERA of 4.04.

If they both leave, the Tribe should sign another free-agent starter to bolster the rotation, which would still include Justin Masterson, Corey Kluber, Danny Salazar and Zach McAllister.

With all of the general managers in one place, maybe we’ll see some interesting moves this week.
