Gabriel leaves Arizona

Signs 2-year deal with Burlington

Camp's all-time wins leader Earl Gabriel has left the Arizona Thunder Chickens after 9.5 seasons with the team to sign a 2-year $2.6 million deal with the Burlington Bees. The 40-year old Gabriel was 7-1 last season in 44 appearances (8 starts) with a 4.36 ERA. The ERA was a career worst for Gabriel and his 1.33 WHIP was also a career worst.

The 2-year deal is probably the final contract of his career for the 5-time Cy Young Award winner and 7-time All-Star. The lefty will likely be used in a relief role in Burlington.
