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.

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.
