Braves avoid Arbitration with newly acquired Cabrera

The Braves and outfielder Melky Cabrera have agreed to a one year, $3.1 million contract, avoiding arbitration. Cabrera was acquired in a deal with the New York Yankees which sent right hander Javier Vazquez and reliever Boone Logan to the Bronx.

Cabrera earned $1.4 million in 2009.

UPDATE: According to Baseball Tonight’s Buster Onley, the Braves are still looking for an additional outfielder, who I continue to hope is not Johnny Damon.

News&Notes: Adam LaRoche has signed a one year, $5 million contract with the Diamondbacks where he'll join Kelly Johnson who signed with the team earlier this month. LaRoche turned down a two year, $17 million deal with the Giants last week. I think I would have taken the money to join the Giants. Have you seen their pitching staff lately?
