Melky Cabrera has avoided arbitration with the Atlanta Braves, agreeing to a one-year, $3.1 million deal. That’s more than twice what Cabrera made last season with the Yankees ($1.4 million).

In other Yankees-related news out of Atlanta, the Braves are said to still be pursuing Johnny Damon. Cabrera, Damon, Mike Dunn and Eric Hinske to Atlanta? Apparently it’s possible.

Oh, and don’t put Jerry Hairston Jr. in pinstripes just yet. This story says the Padres are mildly interested in Jermaine Dye but seem more likely to sign either Hairston or Randy Winn.
