The Toronto Blue Jays have exercised Casey Janssen’s $4 million option for the 2014 season, sportsnet.ca has learned.

Janssen, 32, was one of the most effective closers in baseball during the 2013 season, making the decision an easy one for the team. The $4 million option is part of the US$5.9 million, two-year deal Janssen just completed, leaving him eligible for free agency after the 2014 season.
