Braves, Cabrera agree to 1-year deal
Cabrera, 25, was acquired last month by the Braves from the Yankees in a deal that sent right-handed pitcher Javier Vazquez to New York. The Dominican-born outfielder hit .274 with 13 home runs and 68 RBIs as the Yankees' everyday center fielder last season.
Cabrera, who has a .269 career average in his five years in the majors, earned $1.4 million last season, when he also avoided the arbitration process.
Reliever Peter Moylan is the only arbitration-eligible player still unsigned by the Braves.
Players eligible for salary arbitration have until Friday to file their cases. Players and clubs will exchange offers on Jan. 20 and the formal hearings are scheduled to be held Feb. 1-21.
