ASDRUBAL CABRERA MADE A DEAL WITH THE CLEVELAND INDIANS FOR ONE YEAR AND 4.55 MILLION
Wed, 15 Feb 2012 04:05 PM EST

With hearing only days away, the club and All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera agreed to condition on a 1-year, $4.55 million agreement, extending the Indians’ streak of avoiding arbitration to 21 years. NFL spreads

The agreement was $75,000 above the average between the $5.2 million Cabrera asked for last month, and the $3.75 million the Indians had offered. A hearing had been lined up for the week after next, but won’t be required as the Indians kept their run active.

Cleveland hasn’t gone to an audience since pitcher Greg Swindell and Jerry Browne had their salary decided by an arbitrator.

“With Asdrubal, we’re pleased that we managed to get a 1-year deal done and resolve his contract status for this year,” said CEO Chris Antonetti, who remains amenable to signing Cabrera beyond 2012. “Generally, we are usually open-minded on alternate contract frameworks with a selection of players. And if there’s something that appears sensible, and there is a value in agree that makes sense for both sides, we’ll particular explore it.”

Cabrera was easily the Indians’ best player in 2011, when the organization said till September before wounds overwhelmed their depth and led straight to a late collapse. NFL odds

The 26-year-old hit .273 with 25 homers, 92 RBIs and 32 doubles. He led the Indians in runs (87), hits (165), and stolen bases (17) and set a club record for homers by a shortstop. Cabrera was named the Indians ‘ “Man of the Year” by Cleveland’s baseball writers and last week was honored as the city’s top pro sportsman in 2011 at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards.

He made $2,125,000 in 2011, his 5th season with the Indians who bought him in a 2006 trade from Seattle.

In signing Cabrera, one of 7 Cleveland players to file for settlement this winter, the Indians do not have an only player with a warranted agreement after the 2012 season. That point, together with owner Larry Dolan’s incapability to take on big-market franchises for top-tier independent agents, has led on to rumination the club may be for sale.

Nonetheless Antonetti downplayed the acceptation of the team not having any long-term deals on the books.

“I think that’s just where we are at the moment and just the concerns that have led us to this stage,” he revealed. “There’s no concealed or alternative motive behind that. I would anticipate that at some specific point we’ll have agreements that extend past 2012.

Whether or not that happens at some specific point this offseason or at some particular point this spring or next offseason, we’ll wait.

“But it’s not always a calculated strategy. I believe we as an organization and our ownership have demonstrated that when those dedications appear sensible, we’re certainly prepared to make them. And we will continue to calculate those opportunities along the way.”

Antonetti asserted the team has made offers past 2012, but nobody have resulted in multiyear agreements.

“As we’ve always talked about, there needs to be an adjustment in both price and phrase from both the player and the company, and still we haven’t been able to adjust on those values,” he said. “And that applies both to interior discussions and free-agent conversations.”

Cabrera is suitable for free agency after 2013. Clearly, the Cleveland Indians see him as core player and one worth signing to a long-term contract.
