TORONTO -- Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen, first baseman Adam Lind and infielder Mark DeRosa will all return to Toronto next season.

The Jays confirmed Friday that their contract options have been exercised.

Fan favourite Munenori Kawasaki is a free agent, however, after his contract option was declined.

In other moves, right-handers Josh Johnson and Ramon Ortiz were reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and are now free agents while Rajai Davis and left-hander Darren Oliver are also free agents.

Outfielder Melky Cabrera, pitchers Brett Cecil, Brandon Morrow and Juan Perez and infielder Maicer Izturis were also reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and added to the 40-man roster.
