The Cleveland Indians have extended All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera’s contract for two seasons.
Terms of the deal, which was announced one day before the Indians open the 2012 season at home against the Toronto Blue Jays, were not immediately available.
Cabrera signed a one-year, $4.55 million deal this winter to avoid arbitration. He would have been eligible for free agency after this season, but the extension keeps him with the Indians through 2014.
The 26-year-old Cabrera had a breakout season in 2011, batting .273 with 25 homers and 92 RBIs. Before last season, the switch-hitter had just 18 career homers. Cabrera led AL shortstops in RBIs, was tied for first in hits (165) and was second in doubles (32) and runs (87).
Before giving Cabrera his extension, the Indians did not have a player signed past 2012.
