Giants Sign Melky Cabrera to 1-Year, $6M Deal

The San Francisco Giants have signed Melky Cabrera to a 1-year, $6 million deal and avoid arbitration, according to Enrique Rojas via twitter.

Cabrera, 27, enters his 8th season, the first five of which were spent with the New York Yankees. He was traded to the Braves in December 2009, and signed by the Kansas City Royals for the 2011 season. That turned out to be a surprisingly good signing for both the Royals and Cabrera as he had his best year of his career hitting in Kauffman, hitting .305 / .339 / .470, bringing his career averages up to .275 / .331 / .398.

The Giants also need to sign Tim Lincecum to avoid arbitration, a potential 1-year contract that could break records and be north of $20 million. Other Giants arbitration-eligible players include: Santiago Casilla, Sergio Romo, Pablo Sandoval, and Nate Schierholtz.
