No progress in contract talks between Indians, Shin-Soo Choo

Negotiations on a long-term contract for Indians right fielder Shin-Soo Choo have stalled, MLB.com reports.

The site reports the Indians would like to sign Choo to a five-year contract with an option for a sixth year, but Choo and his agent, Scott Boras, have not expressed much interest in such a deal.

"It’s up to Boras and the Indians to figure that out," Choo told MLB.com on Tuesday. "That’s not my job. My job is to worry about the team."

Boras declined to comment to MLB.com about the negotiations.

Cleveland renewed Choo’s contract this spring, at slightly more than the major league minimum of $400,000. Choo will be eligible for arbitration next year.

Choo, 27, batted .300 with 20 home runs, 86 RBIs and 21 stolen bases last year in his first full big-league season.
