The Cleveland Indians and shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera have agreed on a two-year contract extension, according to MLB.com. According to the report Cabrera will earn $16.5 million over the next two seasons.
Cleveland has not yet made a formal announcement and manager Manny Acta also refused to comment.
"I can't comment," Acta said, according to the report. "I'd be happy for him. I'd be happy for the franchise. It's good to have one of your best players locked up and have him the next few years here without having to worry about arbitration hearings or anything like that. Yeah, it'd be nice." Cabrera hit 25 home runs and drove in 92 last season with the Indians.
