New Braves OF avoids arbitration
Placeholder Image

ATLANTA — Braves outfielder Melky Cabrera has agreed to a $3.1 million, one-year contract with his new team to avoid arbitration.

Cabrera, who made $1,425,000 last season with the New York Yankees, was acquired by Atlanta in a five-player deal that sent 15-game winner Javier Vazquez to the World Series champions. Cabrera was the Yankees' starting center fielder most of the last three seasons, hitting .274 with 13 homers and 68 RBIs in 2009.

Reliever Peter Moylan is the only arbitration-eligible player still unsigned by the Braves.
