Mets signed RHP Fernando Cabrera to a minor league contract.

Cabrera registered an impressive 2.71 ERA and 73/26 K/BB ratio across 63 innings last year for the Athletics' Triple-A affiliate. He'll look to secure a spot in the Mets' bullpen with a strong showing at spring training.

A's signed RHP Fernando Cabrera to a minor league contract.

Things just haven't been the same for Cabrera since he rode his slider to a 1.75 ERA back in 2004-2005. Now 29, he's bounced around to a few different teams and has walked over 5.0 per innings innings in his big league career. He's a longshot to earn a spot in the bullpen.

Red Sox sent RHP Fernando Cabrera outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Cabrera managed to successfully pass through waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. He gave up three runs over 1 1/3 innings in his only appearance with the big club on Friday night.

Red Sox designated RHP Fernando Cabrera for assignment.

Cabrera allowed three runs in 1 1/3 innings Friday night in his lone appearance with the club. The roster spot was needed so that the team could activate Manny Delcarmen from the disabled list today.

Red Sox purchased the contract of RHP Fernando Cabrera from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Cabrera is what he is. He struck out 50 in 36 innings for Pawtucket, but he had also walked 17. Because he can be very tough to hit when he has his splitter working, he'll never run out of chances. Still, he hasn't resembled a useful major league reliever since 2005.

Fernando Cabrera has opted for free agency rather than accept an outright assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The 28-year-old righty posted a 1.71 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 52 2/3 innings this season as Triple-A Pawtucket's closer. He has a 5.12 career ERA on the major league level, but is likely to draw some interest on the open market.

Red Sox purchased the contract of RHP Fernando Cabrera from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Cabrera allowed two runs in four innings over four appearances with the Red Sox in August. The 27-year-old righty posted a 1.71 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 52 2/3 innings, acting as Pawtucket's closer this season. Despite his age, he still has a chance to be a promising arm in 2010.

Red Sox sent RHP Fernando Cabrera outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Cabrera was designated for assignment last week. He returns to a strong Triple-A campaign and may return in September to contribute out of the bullpen.

Red Sox designated RHP Fernando Cabrera for assignment.

Cabrera has been dominating Triple-A all year long and finally got a chance in the bigs. He struck out seven in four innings while giving up two runs and two walks, making his DFA all the more curious. The 27-year old has a real chance of being an important part of a 2010 bullpen.

Red Sox purchased the contract of RHP Fernando Cabrera from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Cabrera, once viewed as the Indians' closer of the future, had a 1.69 ERA and 20 saves for Pawtucket. Command has always been a major issue for him, but he does miss a lot of bats. He's worth a serious look in middle relief.

Red Sox signed RHP Fernando Cabrera, C Carlos Maldonado, INF Angel Chavez, INF Ivan Ochoa and OF Chip Ambres to minor league contracts and invited him to spring training.

Cabrera is still far too wild, but he has fanned 185 batters in 168 2/3 innings as a major leaguer. His upside makes him a very nice pitcher to have stashed away in Triple-A. Chavez and Ochoa will join Nick Green as veteran infield insurance at Pawtucket. Ambres is joining the Boston organization for a second time. He'll be an option as an outfield reserve if J.D. Drew or Rocco Baldelli lands on the DL.

Orioles released RHP Fernando Cabrera.

Cabrera had a 3.13 ERA in his first 17 appearances back from Tommy John surgery, but he had struggled over his last five, putting him at 5.40. The bigger reason for his release, though, might have been the incident last week in which he stormed off the mound after being removed from the game. Cabrera was going to be eligible for arbitration anyway, so the Orioles didn't see him as having a lot of value. The stuff is still there for him to turn into a quality reliever -- he's fanned 185 in 168 2/3 innings as a major leaguer -- but he's done nothing but go backwards three years running.

Fernando Cabrera was fined by manager Dave Trembley after rudely flipping him the ball when he was removed from Friday's game.

"Cabrera was fined an undisclosed amount of money and was disciplined accordingly by me," Trembley said Saturday. "That's where we're at. I am satisfied that he recognized that what he did was inappropriate, and I accept his apology." It sounds like the matter is closed.

Orioles activated RHP Fernando Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

Cabrera, who underwent offseason elbow surgery, had allowed one run in 13 innings since joining Triple-A Norfolk at the end of last month. The Orioles will use him in middle relief and hope that his command holds up.
