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.
