Everth Cabrera went 3-for-4 on Monday, raising his average to .283.

Cabrera is likely to be the Orioles' Opening Day shortstop with J.J. Hardy bound for the disabled list. It should be a short-term assignment, but if he plays well, he'll hang around the Orioles bench and amass AL-only value.
Mar 30 - 5:22 PM

Everth Cabrera is starting in center field for the Orioles in Monday's Grapefruit League game.

Cabrera seemed surprised when reporters informed him where he was playing Monday morning but then added that he's very open to the challenge. The 28-year-old has made 442 of his 452 major league starts at shortstop. The other 10 have been at second base.

Everth Cabrera took a plea agreement for a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest.

The incident happened last September when Cabrera was pulled over in San Diego on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana. However, no trial will be necessary now. He's on probation and will pay a fine and do community service.

Orioles signed INF Everth Cabrera to a one-year, $2.4 million contract.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported the contract details, which includes $600,000 in potential incentives. Cabrera was non-tendered by the Padres in December after a rough year both on and off the field, but he could play himself into significant playing time at second base in Baltimore. His speed makes him worth watching in fantasy leagues.
Feb 25 - 9:04 AM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles have completed a one-year, $2.4 million contract with Everth Cabrera.

He'll have the chance to earn $600,000 more in incentives. Cabrera is expected to be at the Orioles' spring training complex on Tuesday to finalize the deal. Baltimore will also have an additional year of control of Cabrera, as he was only in his second year of arbitration before the Padres non-tendered him. Cabrera has had off-the-field issues and is coming off a season where he hit just .232/.272/.300, but he was an All-Star in 2013 and is one of the fastest players in the game. The 28-year-old will compete for playing time at second base.
Feb 23 - 8:46 PM

Orioles GM Dan Duquette said Thursday that the Everth Cabrera contract might not get done this week.

But it sounds like it will eventually happen. Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday morning that the O's were close to a one-year contract with Cabrera, but there are obviously still some things to sort out. Cabrera had an awful 2014 with the Padres and various off-field transgressions have piled up in recent years, but he's a speedy shortstop with good defensive range and could prove worth the risk for Baltimore.
Feb 19 - 12:25 PM

Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles are close to finalizing a one-year deal with free agent infielder Everth Cabrera.

The deal is believed to be in the range of $2.4 million, which is close to what he made last season. Cabrera was non-tendered by the Padres in December after a disappointing season at the plate and some off-the-field troubles, but we figured someone would take a chance on him eventually. The Orioles already have J.J. Hardy at shortstop, so Cabrera figures to compete with Jonathan Schoop and Ryan Flaherty for playing time at second base. His speed obviously makes him worth monitoring in fantasy leagues.
Feb 18 - 8:58 AM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports writes that Everth Cabrera could become a "consideration" for the Blue Jays.

Cabrera was non-tendered by the Padres in December after a 2014 season filled with on-field and off-field troubles. His off-field issues actually date back several years. He should come pretty cheap, and the Jays have a need at second base. Cabrera would have legitimate fantasy value as a base-stealer if he gets regular playing time in 2015.
Jan 22 - 1:14 PM

Everth Cabrera pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor account of resisting arrest Thursday.

Cabrera was detained in San Diego County on September 3 for driving under the influence of marijuana. He requested the counter arraignment in lieu of the formal proceeding, which was scheduled to begin Monday, the same day the Winter Meetings get underway in San Diego. A readiness hearing is now scheduled for January 14.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Everth Cabrera is not a consideration for the Mets.

The Mets are reportedly weighing their options at shortstop, so it's only natural that Cabrera would come up as a possibility after he was non-tendered by the Padres on Tuesday. However, the club will apparently look elsewhere. Cabrera is coming off a rough season following a PED suspension in 2013 and has also had some off-the-field issues.

Padres non-tendered SS Everth Cabrera.

Cabrera led the National League in steals in 2012 and made the All-Star team in 2013, but he hit just .232/.272/.300 in 2014 and the Padres didn't want to pay him the $2.9 million projected he'd make in arbitration. The shortstop's off-the-field issues likely also played a part in the decision. Cabrera won't have trouble finding a new home. Alexi Amarista is likely the top in-house option to replace Cabrera at shortstop.

San Diego’s District Attorney’s office has filed a criminal complaint against Everth Cabrera for resisting an officer's order during his September arrest for DUI.

Cabrera was detained in San Diego County on September 3 for driving under the influence of marijuana and now his list of charges is growing. San Diego's DA office has also filed a vehicle infraction for possession of marijuana against the 27-year-old shortstop. These are all misdemeanor offenses, and Cabrera will probably be punished with fines instead of jail time.

Everth Cabrera (hamstring) is done for the season.

Cabrera was placed on the disabled list August 12 with a left hamstring strain and got busted for driving under the influence of marijuana on September 3 -- the day he was supposed to begin a minor league rehab assignment at High-A Lake Elsinore. Cabrera will finish 2014 with a dreadful .232/.272/.300 slash line and 18 stolen bases in 90 games.

Everth Cabrera (hamstring) is not expected to rejoin the Padres before the end of their homestand on September 24.

That would leave just a handful of road games left, so Cabrera's return at all at this point is looking up in the air. The speedy shortstop has played just 10 games since the beginning of July due to a pair of hamstring injuries.
