Nationals Sign Daniel Cabrera

10:26pm: Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports the contract for Daniel Cabrera is a one-year deal worth $2.6 million, about a million less than he'd have been owed after arbitration.

1:24pm: According to MLB.com's Bill Ladson, the Nationals signed Daniel Cabrera to a one-year deal (pending a physical).  One of Ladson's sources says the Nats beat out the Mets and Pirates for him.  So far this offseason the Nationals have added Cabrera and Scott Olsen to their rotation.

Cabrera, 28 in May, made 30 starts for the Orioles in 2008 with a 5.25 ERA.  His walks remained high, while his strikeout rate was way down and he lost 1.7mph off his average fastball.  Cabrera's season ended in September with an elbow sprain, which did not require surgery.
