Everth Cabrera signs with the Giants


Veteran infielder Everth Cabrera has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Giants, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

Cabrera signed a one-year, $2.4 million contract with the Orioles this offseason only to be released last week after hitting .208 with a .479 OPS in 29 games.

Cabrera made the All-Star team in 2013 as a member of the Padres, but he’s a career .246 hitter with a .643 OPS who profiles best as a utility man with good speed and the ability to play shortstop or second base.

In order to clear a spot for J.J. Hardy to make his season debut tonight against the Yankees, the Orioles placed infielder Everth Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list with a left foot contusion.

Cabrera suffered the injury when he was hit in the foot by a pitch last night against the Mets. The Orioles sent him for X-rays today which apparently ruled out a fracture, but he’ll now get some extended rest.

Cabrera, 28, was batting just .205/.227/.229 through 89 plate appearances this season and figured to have a diminished role even after Hardy’s return.

On the disabled list all season with a strained left shoulder, shortstop J.J. Hardy is back on the Orioles’ active roster and will make his 2015 debut tonight against the Yankees.

Hardy went on a brief minor-league rehab assignment before being activated and returns after missing a total of 25 games, during which time Everth Cabrera filled in as the Orioles’ primary shortstop and the team went 12-13.

Hardy, who signed a three-year, $40 million contract extension is October to bypass free agency at age 31 and remain in Baltimore, has hit .259 with 86 homers and a .720 OPS in 587 games since joining the Orioles in 2011. He’s also won three Gold Glove awards during that time.

J.J. Hardy could return to the Orioles on Thursday when they begin a series against the Yankees, manager Buck Showalter said.

Hardy, who has been on the disabled list with a strained left shoulder, is scheduled to play his third rehab game for Bowie on Wednesday night. He was 3-for-8 in the first two games.

Hardy was placed on the disabled list before Opening Day after suffering a strained left shoulder in one of the Orioles’ final Grapefruit League games. The hope was that he’d be ready for activation when first eligible — on April 11 — but a couple of minor setbacks prevented that from happening. Everth Cabrera has been serving as Baltimore’s primary shortstop. He entered play Wednesday with a brutal .213/.226/.238 batting line in 22 games.

It’s taken much longer than initially expected, but the Orioles have cleared shortstop J.J. Hardy to begin a minor-league rehab assignment as he comes back from a left shoulder injury that’s sidelined him all season.

Nearly a month ago Hardy was said to be “close” to starting a rehab stint, but instead he continued to rest before receiving a cortisone injection in late April. Now he’s set to play Monday night at Double-A and will likely play at least 3-4 games there before potentially coming off the disabled list, according to Rich Dubroff of CSNBaltimore.com.

Hardy’s return would provide a much-needed boost to the Orioles’ injury wrecked middle infield, which of late has consisted of Everth Cabrera at shortstop and 32-year-old Steve Pearce seeing his first career action at second base.
