Is Daniel Cabrera Gone? Yes, More Than Likely…

Is Daniel’s time up in Baltimore. Yes it is, according to the Baltimore Sun’s Peter Schmuck:

The O’s attempted to generate interest in a deal at the winter meetings but apparently found other teams unwilling to take the risk of going to salary arbitration with Cabrera, who made $2.85 million last year and stood to get a significant raise in spite of his 8-10 record and 5.25 ERA.

Apparently, the O’s did not make an attempt to re-sign Cabrera for a more reasonable salary, something they still are trying to do tonight with reliever Lance Cormier. The team finally has given up on Cabrera and will leave it to some other club to try and tap his raw talent and unfulfilled potential.

Oh well.
