PHOENIX (AP) - Nomar Garciaparra and Orlando Cabrera have finalized one-year contracts with the Oakland A's, a pair of deals the team hope will fortify its infield.

The A's welcomed Garciaparra with a special number: He'll wear No. 1, last donned on the team by Billy Martin when he managed them in 1982.

Garciaparra was limited to 55 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers last season because of injuries, slowed by bad calf muscles. The six-time All-Star batted .264 with eight homers and 28 RBIs, and strongly considered retirement in the offseason.

Cabrera, a two-time Gold Glove winner, hit .281 with eight homers and 57 RBIs in 161 games with the Chicago White Sox last season.
