Sox stealth pursuit of Melky Cabrera pays off - Chicago Tribune

I guess this means that steroid use really pays off in the end.

MLB.com confirmed the 30-year-old Cabrera agreed to a deal worth an estimated $42-$43.5 million, pending a physical.

Mariners still talking to Melky, appear to be favorites to sign him - CBSSports.com

As was first reported here, the Mariners may be willing to get into the range of the Cruz deal, which was $57 million for four years. While Cabrera has been seeking a five-year deal, four is a very reasonable offer.

School of Roch: Melky Cabrera a “fallback option” for the Orioles

Can anyone make a case for Markakis getting more money from a team other than the Orioles?

So how do you feel about Melky Cabrera?
I’m just curious, since I’ve heard from multiple people that he’s a “fallback option” for the Orioles if they can’t re-sign Nick Markakis. His name has been discussed. He’s on the radar, as the kids say.

Melky Cabrera will have season-ending surgery on broken pinkie finger

Free agent this offseason, which will be interesting.

Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera suffered a broken pinkie finger sliding back into first base when Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez made a snap throw to first base in the third inning of tonight’s game at Fenway Park… Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports that Cabrera will undergo season-ending surgery to fix the broken finger. It’s a big loss for the Blue Jays, who are still within striking distance for either of the two American League Wild Card slots… He ends the season with an impressive .301/.351/.458 slash line along with 16 home runs and 73 RBI — a nice bounce-back year after struggling in 2013.
