Montar said the Mets will eventually sign Cabrera, ‘or they have at least come to see him throw.’

The 28–year-old Cabrera is 8–7 in 125 major-league relief appearances for the Indians and O’s, during which he had a 5.02 ERA while striking out 185 batters in 168 innings.

The Orioles signed Cabrera last off-season. 

However, he was put on the disabled list in March following surgery on his right elbow.  He returned to pitch 22 innings, before being cut in September after he ‘rudely flipped the ball back to his manager.’
