Originally posted on Pirates Prospects  |  Last updated 1/27/12

The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed right handed pitcher Daniel Cabrera to a minor league deal, according to Mario Rojas of CandelaDeportiva (h/t MLBTR). Cabrera has a career 5.10 ERA in the majors in 892.1 innings, along with a 6.8 K/9 and a 5.2 BB/9 ratio. Most of his time in the majors has been as a starter, spending most of his career with Baltimore. The last time he pitched in the majors was in 2009 with Arizona.

The 6′ 7″, 220 pound right hander hasn’t pitched in the minors since 2010, when he was with the Angels’ farm system. He’s always had a live arm, but has dealt with some serious control issues throughout his career. I’d expect him to work out of the AAA bullpen, but the odds of him reaching the majors this year seem slim. He turns 31 in May.
