Nats, Cabrera agree to one-year deal

WASHINGTON -- The Nationals and right-hander Daniel Cabrera have agreed to a one-year contract, pending a physical, according to three baseball sources. The deal is reportedly worth $2.6 million.

Cabrera, 27, was 8-10 with a 5.25 ERA for the Orioles this past season. Known for his fastball, curveball and changeup, Cabrera will join a rotation that will include left-handers Scott Olsen and John Lannan.

According to one source, the Nationals beat out the Mets and Pirates for Cabrera's services.

Nationals general manager Jim Bowden was not available for comment and Mike Gazda, the director of media relations for Washington, said the team has nothing to announce at this time.

Cabrera spent the last five years with Orioles and compiled a 48-59 record with a 5.05 ERA for Baltimore.
