Cabrera, a 6-foot-9 right-hander, has appeared in 162 games, 155 of them as a starter. Still only 29, the native of the Dominican Republic gained some notoriety several years ago for his lively fastball and struggles with control. On April 12, 2006, he managed to get through five innings against the Tampa Bay Rays while walking nine batters and striking out 10.
The Angels gave left-handed pitcher Jayson Miller his release to fit Cabrera on the roster.
Cabrera signed with the Baltimore Orioles in 1999, pitched for Washington and Arizona in 2009 and was on the Chicago White Sox's roster before being released in March.
Cabrera is 48-59 with a 5.10 ERA in his major-league career.
